With the 20th anniversary of their ’S&M’ album, Metallica have announced a special celebration performance labelled ’S&M²’. The band will reunite with the San Francisco Orchestra who supported them on the live album and DVD. This upcoming celebration spectacular serves as a component of the grand opening of the new Chase Centre, the new home of the Golden State Warriors, in San Francisco. During a statement, Lars Ulrich and James Hatfield stated: “Please join us for this one-night-only show as we celebrate the addition of what is sure to become a cultural landmark in the Bay Area. We’re thrilled to be invited to be a part of it and humbled to be sharing the stage with the legendary MTT and the city’s finest musicians in the San Francisco Symphony.” The original album, composed by Michael Kamen, served as a tribute to the band’s late bassist, Cliff Burton and his love for classical music. ‘S&M²’ will be taking place on September 6, this year.
