SAN FRANCISCO, CA—The San Francisco Symphony and Metallica’s S&M2 live album and video, captured at concerts on September 6 & 8, 2019 at San Francisco’s Chase Center is out now, available in a variety of formats including vinyl, CD, DVD, and Blu-ray via metallica.com/sm2The concerts were historic on multiple levels, serving as the grand opening of San Francisco’s Chase Center, reuniting the band and Symphony for the first time since the 1999 performances captured on the Grammy-winning S&M album, and featuring the first-ever symphonic renditions of songs written and released since those original S&M shows.
 

“S&M2 offers an inspired and eye-opening view into not just the shared heritage of classical music and heavy metal, but into the spirit of innovation and to endless vistas awaiting exploration.” - Louder 
 

“And it’s also of little surprise, especially for anyone who attended those increasingly legendary shows at Chase last year, that this new album is another major winner. . . What a great memento of such a monumental night in Bay Area live music history.” - The Mercury News 
 

“This collaboration between Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony brings to life the fusion of heavy metal and classical music. . . As it was in 1999, S&M2 is a grand celebration of the energy and magic that these forms of music convey.” – Metal Wani 


S&M2 is a landmark release in the Metallica catalogue, both sonically and visually. Produced by Greg Fidelman with James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, the S&M2 live album captures more than two and a half hours of James, Lars, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo joining forces with the nearly 80-strong San Francisco Symphony, legendary Music Director of the San Francisco Symphony Michael Tilson Thomas, and conductor Edwin Outwater. The concert film is a brand-new edit done by Joe Hutching (Through The Never) and both the audio and visuals have been taken to the next level from the October 2019 theatrical version that played in over 3,700 cinemas worldwide.
