This past July, Metallica announced details of its massive 40th-birthday celebration: The band will mark this milestone by inviting the worldwide Metallica family to join them in their hometown of San Francisco for two unique live shows featuring two different setlists December 17th and 19th at Chase Center. Tickets for these shows were made available only to registered members of Metallica’s Fifth Member fan club.

The 40th-anniversary shows see Metallica return to Chase Center for the first time since the September 2019 S&M² concerts that also served as the venue’s grand opening. It was impossible not to notice that fans from more than 60 countries traveled to the City by the Bay and completely took over San Francisco for S&M² weekend. That outpouring of positive vibes from around the world inspired Metallica to invite those Fifth Members back — and this time, in addition to the two shows at Chase Center, the band will be curating other live music and comedy events, Blackened Whiskey tastings, and so much more all around the city during the long four-day weekend of celebrations starting on December 16th.

  1. I will never understand the continued popularity of this once great band that hasn’t released anything even remotely solid (yes, it hurts me to give somewhat kudos to the Blah album) in over 30 years.

    1. Medved, no, but that issue upsets me about Meh-tallica, too. Lars would tape trade all over the world when he was younger. But when fans started using technology to “napster” songs, now ‘modern day tape trading” is wrong. Lars is a hypocrite.

  2. Trujillo is a great bassist, but in my opinion, Newsted should still be in the band. I would love to watch these shows, but I’m not into this streaming sh-t, so I’m hoping eventually they’ll be released on DVD, remember them? 😉

    1. Totally agree, they lost more than just a bass player when he left. His backing vocals and presence were a perfect fit, plus he gave James vocals a rest. Hope to see him next weekend join the boys since he was at the 30th Anniversary celebration.

  3. I ll be there both nights with wife & teen daughter in hand. Should be a great event. I’m wearing a full-body condom the entire weekend, I should fit right in. \m/ \m/

  4. Im not a huge fan, Hatfield’s voice while powerful is mostly with the exception of a few tunes one dimensional think metallica is still relevant and extremely popular because their live shows are still powerful , and they have all those once great classic metallica hits the fans still love – have they lost a little something writing new material yeah.. do they still have a huge fan base ..yeah. do they still pack shows ..yeah
    Do they run tracks and lip sync … no – they are obviously doing something right,
