Metallica‘s two upcoming concerts with the San Francisco Symphony on September 6th and 8th, commemorating the grand opening of the city’s new Chase Center venue, will be the subject of a film called S&M2 that will be shown one night only, on October 9th, in more than 3,000 movie theaters around the world.
The classical musicians and classic rockers will be the first acts to perform at the new 18,064-seat arena that will serve as home to the NBA team Golden State Warriors in the fall.
The shows and film will also celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original S&M concerts, album, and film, also done in collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony in 1999. For the new shows, the band will perform several tracks from the original 1999 S&M release as well as symphonic versions of new songs released since then.
Movie theaters for the October screening are still being confirmed and tickets will go on sale August 7th, with more details expected to be announced at metallica.film.
