METALLICA have announced a “San Francisco Takeover” to coincide with their 40th-anniversary celebrations next month. Among the events being planned are performances by TAIPEI HOUSTON, the new band featuring Myles and Layne Ulrich, sons of METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich; and OTTTO, the three-piece band featuring Tye Trujillo, son of METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo; and THE WEDDING BAND, the side project of METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo, along with UGLY KID JOE singer Whitfield Crane and BAD WOLVES guitarist Doc Coyle.
METALLICA say in a statement: “Our 40th Anniversary celebration is just a month away, and we’re getting ready to take over the city of San Francisco! From awesome live music and Blackened Whiskey parties to a ‘TALLICA film-fest and three Ross Halfin events, you won’t want to miss out on what we have in store. Tickets for all weekend events go on sale this Friday, November 19 at 10 AM PST.
“Already set to attend the two METALLICA shows and want to make sure you get in the door at every other official, ticketed, METALLICA event in San Francisco that weekend? A very limited number of ‘Takeover the 40th’ upgrades will also be available on Friday.

This past July, METALLICA announced details of their massive 40th-anniversary celebration, seeing the band mark this milestone by inviting the worldwide METALLICA family to join them in their hometown of San Francisco for two unique live shows featuring two different setlists on December 17 and 19 at the Chase Center. Tickets for these shows were made available only to registered members of METALLICA’s Fifth Member fan club.
