Metallica and The San Francisco Symphony

About the Experience

The San Francisco Symphony, Metallica, and the Golden State Warriors are holding an inaugural event held in San Francisco’s new Chase Center will be S&M2, a joint concert by rock band Metallica and The San Francisco Symphony, conducted by San Francisco Symphony's Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas and Edwin Outwater.

The Chase Center, a new 18,064-seat privately financed sports and entertainment arena in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, is the new home of the back-to-back NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. This performance is one of the top-tier acts to perform at Chase Center this Fall.

About the night

The Chase Center inaugural event comes 20 years after the two groups first collaborated for a historic set of concerts billed as Symphony and Metallica (S&M). The original S&M concerts were performed by Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony, conducted by the late Michael Kamen in spring 1999 at the Berkeley Community Theatre.
Tickets sold out fast, but we were able to secure just a handful of tickets for Red Curtain Addict fans!

More about what to expect

What to expect...

“It’s a natural fit for the Chase Center, the home of the Warriors and a new hub of community pride, to open with a joint concert by two influential voices of the Bay Area musical scene, Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony,” said San Francisco Symphony Chief Executive Officer Mark C. Hanson.

“This is beyond exciting on so many fronts,” said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich. “The fact that San Francisco is finally getting a much needed world-class arena, the fact that Metallica gets to be part of the opening celebration, the fact that we get to revisit S&M 20 years later, and the fact that we get to share the stage not only with the San Francisco Symphony once again but with the legend himself, MTT, as he kicks off his final year as music director here in San Francisco. This is mind-blowingly awesome...bring it on ASAP!!!”
