Metallica fans, now is the time to either take out a bank loan or completely deplete your funds as Metallica hasn’t only announced their Australian/New Zealand tour with Slipknot, but they’ve just announced they will be joining with the San Francisco Symphony orchestra for the first time in twenty years. For many die-hard Metallica fans, we are sure you still listen to this epic concert that was conducted by the late Michael Kamen in the spring of 1999 at the Berkeley Community Theatre.
Two decades later, the group will team up with the SF Symphony with legendary conductor Michael Tilson Thomas to celebrate the historic Grand Opening of San Francisco’s Chase Center. The official inaugural Chase Center S&M2 Concert will take place on Friday, September 6th. You can see James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich’s announcement along with Michael and the representatives from the Golden State Warriors and San Francisco mayor London Breed at this location.
This will be the first time the group has teamed up with the SF symphony in twenty years as the performance will also mark new orchestral charts by Bruce Coughlin. Pre-sales for the Fan Club members begin Tomorrow (19th) with the Legacy Member sale beginning at 9AM Pacific Time and the Fifth Member Sale starting at 10 AM Pacific Time. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (22nd) at 10 AM Pacific Time.
