Metallica posted a 27 minute summary of the first of their recently celebrated 30th year anniversary shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco. The shows were for fan club members only and featured support from brass band, The Soul Rebels, and Finnish cello rockers, Apocalyptica, as well as a salute to Ray Burton, the 86-year-old father of late bassist Cliff Burton, Jim Breuer hosting the night’s events.
There is a strong sense of wanting to celebrate with the fans, giving them an intimate night where it was described as feeling more a pub show sort of vibe, with the band playing and talking between songs, inviting fans on stage to rock out with them. A change from the normal barrier-gap-stage shows they’ve been known to play.

Despite the 30 year celebration, Metallica are planning to go and record their tenth studio album next, after bassist Rob Trujillo mentioned that they had started the writing process in a recent interview.
