Metallica playing intimate Chicago show at Metro tonight
Metallica recently made their return to the stage after, according to them, 738 days, with a surprise, last minute, intimate show at the 500-capacity Independent in San Francisco. Tonight they're doing another intimate show in another city, Chicago. The show is at the Metro, where they last played in 1983, and tickets are on sale only at the venue box office in person.
On their site, Metallica write:
THAT was way too much fun last week as we finally played in front of real live fans for the first time in over two years in our hometown of San Francisco. So why not do it again?? This time we’re in Chicago and we’ll be hitting the stage at the storied Metro on Clark Street tonight... our first time back there since 1983!!
