“S&M2 does a fantastic job capturing what it felt like to be in the audience… a great memento of such a monumental night in Bay Area live music history… if you own the first awesome S&M, do you need this follow-up as well? Absolutely. S&M2 works as an excellent companion piece to the earlier Grammy winner, featuring nine different selections — including three from the band’s most recent album, “Hardwired … to Self Destruct — and showcasing a legendary rock band at a very different, though no less satisfying, point in its musical career.”—THE MERCURY NEWS
Preceded by its Metallica + San Francisco Symphony versions of “All Within My Hands,” “Nothing Else Matters,” “Moth Into Flame” and “For Whom The Bell Tolls,” Metallica and San Francisco Symphony: S&M2 is at long last available.
Metallica and San Francisco Symphony’s sold out September 6 & 8, 2019 S&M2 concerts were ecstatically received by 40,000 fans traveling from nearly 70 countries, as well as the national and local media: Rolling Stone raved “the group proved that anything was possible,” Variety noted an atmosphere “buzzing with excitement,” and Consequence of Sound hailed “a true celebration of Metallica and their musical prowess.” The shows were historic on a number of 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 from St. Anger, Death Magnetic, Hardwired… to Self-Destruct, and more.
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 Hetfield, Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo joining forces with the nearly 80-strong SF Symphony, legendary Music Director of the orchestra Michael Tilson Thomas, and conductor Edwin Outwater. The concert film is a brand-new edit done by Joe Hutching (Through The Never), with both the audio and visuals taken to the next level from the October 2019 theatrical version that played in over 3,700 cinemas worldwide
Blackened Recordings has brought S&M2 to life once more 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 Symphony during the shows and hand-signed by all four band members (in addition to including everything in the Deluxe Box). With this comprehensive Blackened Recordings release, S&M2 can be fully experienced by others beyond those who squeezed into the Chase Center over those two unforgettable evenings.
