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, will be released on August 28, 2020 in a variety of formats including vinyl, CD, DVD, and Blu-ray. Metallica and San Francisco Symphony: S&M2 is available for preorder now 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.


The sold-out S&M2 shows were rapturously received by the 40,000 fans who traveled from nearly 70 countries, as well as the media. Rolling Stone raved, “the group proved that anything was possible,” Variety noted an atmosphere “buzzing with excitement,” The Mercury News witnessed “a concert that fans will be talking about for decades to come,” while Consequence of Sound hailed it “a true celebration of Metallica and their musical prowess.”

On August 28, S&M2 comes to life once more with the release of Metallica and San Francisco Symphony: S&M2. S&M2 will be available in a staggering array of formats, ranging from a digital album on all leading streaming outlets, to 4LP vinyl, 2CD, DVD and Blu-ray versions, to a limited edition color vinyl 4LP + 2CD + Blu-ray Deluxe Box featuring sheet music, guitar picks, poster and more, all the way up to a Metallica.com exclusive Super Deluxe Box, limited to 500 copies, each featuring actual sheet music used by the San Francisco Symphony during the shows and hand-signed by all four band members (in addition to including everything in the Deluxe Box). With this long-awaited Blackened Recordings release, S&M2 can be fully experienced by others beyond those who squeezed into the Chase Center over those two unforgettable evenings. 

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.

S&M2 is available for preorder now, preceded by the S&M2 versions of “All Within My Hands” and “Nothing Else Matters,” both now available across digital platforms. See below for track listing and detailed list of configurations, and stay tuned to metallica.com/sm2 for further information.
