Metallica and San Francisco Symphony reunite to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their original S&M (Symphony & Metallica) show with Metallica and San Francisco Symphony: S&M², filmed at San Francisco’s new Chase Center and releasing this fall in theaters.

In spring of 1999, the original S&M concerts were performed by Metallica and San Francisco Symphony and conducted by the late Michael Kamen at the Berkeley Community Theatre. The 2019 S&M² concert will include the first live performances of these arrangements in 20 years, plus the first-ever Metallica and San Francisco Symphony renditions of songs written and released since the original concert, with new orchestral charts by Bruce Coughlin.

Kymberli Frueh, SVP for Programming and Content Acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing has said:

“Trafalgar Releasing is excited to give Metallica fans around the world a chance to celebrate this anniversary concert together in local cinemas in October. The original collaboration between two San Francisco legends—Metallica and San Francisco Symphony became a true moment in music history two decades ago. Reuniting again to perform S&M² is a salute to the legendary collaboration and creates a special moment for Metallica fans to see this iconic pairing.”

Tickets will go on sale August 7, and the event will screen in cinemas around the world on October 9.
