On September 6 & 8, Metallica’s two shows with the San Francisco Symphony for the grand opening of Chase Center took place. The concert, conducted by Edwin Outwater, marked the 20th anniversary of Metallica’s first performance with the San Francisco Symphony at the Berkeley Community Theater in 1999.

Metallica co-founder and drummer Lars Ulrich spoke to Kerrang! magazine:

“The Anesthesia bass solo was incredible. The way the fans reacted to that was goosebump-city. I loved the dare of playing Iron Foundry. I loved revisiting songs we don’t play so often like The Outlaw Torn and The Call Of Ktulu.”
