Metallica Plots December Shows to Celebrate 30th Anniversary

Metallica is still thrashing around 30 years after its formation in 1981, and the group will celebrate the anniversary with a string of December shows in San Francisco, Calif. for members of their Met Club fan club.

“Thirty years of Metallica… can you believe it? We think it’s cause for a major celebration!” the group posted on its website on Wednesday (July 27). Metallica will play the Fillmore in San Francisco on Dec. 5, 7, 9 and 10, and the group promises that the set list won’t disappoint the diehards. “These unique shows will include special guests and events, rare songs, varied set lists, odds and ends, and all the nutty stuff you expect from Metallica… fun for the entire family!” the band writes.

Members of the group’s fan club can purchase a special four-pack of tickets (one for each of the four shows) for $19.81, while single show tickets will be on sale for just $6.00 each. Met Club members can purhcase tickets through a reservation system that begins on Aug. 8.

Metallica recently collaborated with Lou Reed on a project that may come out this fall, while last month producer Rick Rubin reporters that the group is gearing up for the official follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic.” “I had a meeting with Lars (Ulrich) in San Francisco…to explore what the focus was going to be this time around,” says Rubin. “I’m still sort of thinking about what that is going to be. I’ll ask a lot of questions and we’ll probably listen to some of the riffs that they’ve been writing. Usually I’ll hear something that will sort of indicate the direction and then we’ll talk about it from there.”

  1. I love METALLICA! I remember my dad playing his Metallica cassette tapes in the car on all our road trips! He had an old tin box under his seat where he kept it from my mom.
