Legendary metal band Metallica is turning 30 years old (ugh, I know the feeling), and to celebrate the landmark, the band has announced four very special shows.
The shows will take place at The Fillmore in San Francisco on December 5, 7, 9, and 10, and are only open to fan–club members. This is bad news for fans worldwide who would spend hundreds of dollars to see the band any and everywhere, but good news for fan–club members who can get to San Francisco.
And speaking of spending hundreds of dollars—you won’t have to. The shows are specially priced at only $6 per ticket, or $19.81 for a four–pack of tickets to each show. The performances won’t be generic, either; the band promises plenty of fun and surprises to those who come out. It will without doubt be a very good week for a lucky few Metallica fans come December.

Thirty years of Metallica… can you believe it? We think it’s cause for a major celebration! You’ve been asking for a while now “just what the hell are you going to do to mark 30 years as a band?” closely followed by “why don’t we have more exclusive shows for Fan Club members?” We’ve heard you loud and clear and are beyond psyched to announce that the week of December 5, 2011 will be a full on Metallica week in the Bay Area, more specifically we will be playing four shows for Met Club members only at the historic Fillmore in San Francisco on December 5, 7, 9, and 10 to celebrate our 30th anniversary. These unique shows will include special guests and events, rare songs, varied set lists, odds and ends, and all the nutty stuff you expect from Metallica… fun for the entire family! Come to the Bay Area and spend the week with us to not only close out 2011 out with a bang, but to celebrate over three decades worth of craziness.
Participate in the entire week of festivities with special four pack tickets (one ticket for each of the four shows) and automatic entry into the contests for various other special events, available for the clever price of $19.81 (get it??). If you can’t join us for the full week, we’ll have individual show tickets too and as you can see we’re going back to early ’80′s ticket pricing (but not the hair!)… single show tickets will be just $6.00 each. Both four packs and individual show tickets will be available for Fan Club members only through a reservation system and we do have to add facility fees, blah, blah. Clubbers can log in for all the details… we’re taking reservations through August 8.
Hope to see you for a week of madness in December!
