Recorded September 6th and 8th, 2019, at San Francisco’s Chase Center — the first-ever concerts at that new arena — the gigs found Metallica collaborating with the symphony for the first time since 1999. The 20-song concert boasted symphonic versions of Metallica hits, including at least one track from each of the band’s 10 studio albums.
