Metallica Announce 30th Anniversary Shows

Metallica have officially announced their plans for a string of shows celebrating their 30th anniversary. The thrash metal legends have announced that they will be playing four shows at the historic Fillmore in San Francisco on December 5, 7, 9, and 10 as part of a week-long celebration in the Bay Area.

The tickets will be sold only through a reservation system. For more information, head to
