It's been quite some time since Metallica — only the biggest heavy metal band in history and a killer account on TikTok (maybe) — has been on a stage. The band took a break toward the end of 2019 for frontman James Hetfield to take care of some personal business, and then the global pandemic putting a halt to shows this spring and summer.
But come Aug. 28, we'll get some new thrash, and we won't have to leave our homes to get it. S&M2 — the band's second go with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra that enjoyed a short theatrical release in October 2019 — will be released on vinyl, CD, Blu-Ray, and digitally. Most of the formats are available for preorder now.
The concert was filed on Sept. 6 and Sept. 8 at the Chase Center in San Francisco (the band's hometown) and has been re-edited, remixed and remastered (mastered!) for home release.
The two-set concert features 22 songs — many of which also were performed at the original S&M concert in April 1999.
Here's the track list of the 20th anniversary show:
1. The Ecstasy Of Gold
