In a few months, Metallica will be revisiting the “S&M” idea with a couple of special shows in California and for those of us who couldn’t secure a ticket, there will be a screening. Take a look down below on this super cool happening.
The Press Release:
As many of you know, we were blown away by the response to S&M² when we announced the first – and then second – show this past spring. For those of you who can’t attend either of the gigs in the Bay Area, we still want to share this unique performance with you. On October 9th, we are psyched to be bringing you S&M², a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the original S&M concerts, album, and film that also commemorates the grand opening of the state-of-the-art Chase Center, a historic addition to San Francisco’s waterfront. This one-night-only event will be shown in over 3,000 movie theaters around the world!
Recorded live on September 6th & 8th, S&M² will see us joining forces once again with the San Francisco Symphony, led in part by legendary conductor Michael Tilson Thomas as he kicks off his final season. We’ll be performing several tracks from the original ’99 S&M release as well as symphonic versions of new songs released since then.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Based on the calendar, this one-night only film screening will be just after the New York Comic Con and by that time I should be back to normal functioning order after the four days of adventuring. You might be laughing at that statement but believe me. Once you do four days of Comic Con you are a wreck for a straight couple of days afterwards and that is just body recovery and assuming you did not get a case of the dreaded “Con Crud”. I will be looking into this screening for myself and maybe even for a potential contest since I used to do things like that for Fathom Events group and they sure were fun to do for a change of pace. Stay tuned for more information about this as it comes to light. As I close up this announcement, I wonder if this one night only screening is up your alley or are you one of the lucky fans that might be heading out to California where it will be taking place. Either side of the fence is welcome to chime in and you should know where that is done by this time. See you soon.
