FROM BLABBERMOUTH - The concert, conducted by Edwin Outwater with a special appearance by Michael Tilson Thomas, marked the 20th anniversary of METALLICA's first performance with the symphony at the Berkeley Community Theater in 1999, which resulted in the live album"S&M"(Symphony & Metallica). A film of this month's concerts (including Sunday's performance at the same venue), called"S&M²", will arrive in theaters worldwide on October 9.

Sunday's show once again drew 16,000 fans and saw the four members of METALLICA playing on a circular, revolving stage in the center of the arena floor, surrounded by 75 members of the Symphonyand Outwater.

The three-hour concert was split into two parts and included a rendition of"Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth)"from METALLICA's debut album,"Kill 'Em All", performed as a solo by the Symphony bassist Scott Pingel in tribute to METALLICA's late bassist Cliff Burton.
