Metallica have performed another hometown orchestrated show with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra 20 years after their first event in 1999.
‘S&M2’ updated the first episode with many of the tracks sourced from subsequent albums from 2003’s ‘St Anger’ to the last Metallica studio album ‘Hardwired … To Self Destruct’.
The Metallica S&M2 special event with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra took place at the new Chase Theater in San Francisco, home of the Golden State Warriors, before 16,000 fans.
The San Francisco Symphony Orchestra Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas conducted the orchestra. This will be the final season for Thomas, who is retiring after undergoing heart surgery earlier this year.
