Now In Theaters: “Metallica S&M2” For One Night Only

Back in July I shared the news about the Metallica live concert film “S&M2” which finds the band delivering the goods with the San Francisco Symphony at the brand new Chase Center in San Francisco. If you missed that post please click HERE to learn more. Tonight this film will premiere for one night only in more than 3000 theaters across the country.

Starring:
James Hetfield
Kirk Hammett
Lars Ulrich
Robert Trujillo
San Francisco Symphony

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I really wanted to see this film in the theaters as opposed to on the big screen TV but the deluge of things to process post New York Comic Con and the planning for the weeks ahead will make this impossible. I’d actually like to see “Joker” today since the forecast is going to be mostly rainy and chilly. There are no better days to see a movie than on one like that. What about you folks? Are you planning on seeing this film in the theaters during its one night only presentation? Chime in down below in the comments section and if you see this post after seeing the film, please feel free to let us know what you think. This isn’t like a Marvel Studios film where any plot can be spoiled so I don’t care. Okay, off to the movies.

The Statement:
A Note from Lars, Kirk, and Rob. We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we must postpone our upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand. As most of you probably know, our brother James has been struggling with addiction on and off for many years. He has now, unfortunately, had to re-enter a treatment program to work on his recovery again.

The Scoop:
The response to the two S&M² shows earlier this month at San Francisco’s new Chase Center has been nothing short of mind-boggling!
