On Saturday (8/29) Metallica fans came together at area drive-in to see James, Lars. Kirk and Rob perform a recorded concert experience. Following the release of “S&M2” on Friday was Saturday’s event which was attended by fans at Alameda County Fairgrounds, West Wind: Solano Drive-In, Lakeport Auto Movies and numerous other outdoor venues across North America.

“It feels good to play again,” James Hetfield said during the show. “We’re not sure what everyone out there has been doing, but I know they’ve been listening to music and they’ve been praying and praying for something live they could grasp on to. Because music helps us through all things, including this.”

It was recorded on August 10th from Gundlach Bundschu winery in Sonoma. This was the concert setlist:

01. Hardwired
02. For Whom The Bell Tolls
03. Fuel
04. Seek & Destroy
05. Creeping Death
06. One
07. Now That We’re Dead
08. Sad But True
09. Moth Into Flame
10. The Unforgiven
11. Wherever I May Roam
12. Fade To Black
13. Master Of Puppets
14. Battery
15. Nothing Else Matters
16. Enter Sandman

So much was needed to execute, perform and distribute a night of this magnitude and especially to do so with the high standards set for any Metallica event.
