Spin: Metallica to Screen S&M2 Concert Film in Theaters for One Night Only
Metallica will reunite with the San Francisco Symphony in September for two performances called S&M2, which is a play off the band’s 1999 album and concert film S&M. The “S&M,” in this case, stands for “Symphony & “Metallica.” This time around, at the Chase Center in San Francisco on September 6 and 8, Metallica will play versions of songs performed at the original S&M shows as well as versions of tracks the band has put out in the 20 years since. San Francisco Symphony music director Michael Tilson Thomas will conduct the symphony this time around. Michael Kamen conducted the symphony for the original S&M shows in 1999 but passed away in 2003.
