Metallica announce Encore Drive-In Nights performance

Metallica will be the first rock band to be featured in the Encore Drive-In Nights series, with a full set showing August 29 at hundreds of drive-in and outdoor theaters across the United States and Canada.

The show will be shot specially for the Encore Drive-In Nights Series at a location near the band’s Northern California headquarters later this week.

The band’s first show since the September 2019 “S&M2” concerts that opened Chase Center in San Francisco comes a day after the release of the new live package and will feature material from throughout their near four-decade career.

Pre-sale tickets, available exclusively to Metallica’s Fifth Member fan club, will go on sale on August 12 at; general on-sale will begin on August 14.

Every ticket purchase - which admits one carload of up to six people - will include four digital downloads of Metallica’s “S&M2”, the live album documenting the two historic concerts that reunited the band and San Francisco Symphony for the first time in 20 years.

“It’s been a crazy, hectic, thrilling and exciting time at Metallica HQ,” says the band, “as the four of us have all been in the same room making music for the first time in almost a year! ‘What’s going on?’ you ask? We’re recording a concert to appear at your local drive-in theater… that’s what!

“Needless to say, this is an exciting first for us, as we continue to explore new ways to connect with you and keep playing live… this definitely qualifies as a unique and memorable experience for us. We hope you think so too!”

The exclusive concert will adhere to guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as all state and local public health mandates. Encore Drive-In Nights has partnered with leading health experts to establish procedures for staff and fans.
