The metal veterans revealed that they'll play four shows at San Francisco's Fillmore. The choice of city wasn't arbitrary, of course, since San Francisco is where the band first got rolling back in 1981. And these dates won't be your run-of-the-mill Metallica concerts. "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," they wrote on their site, "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."
The ticket prices are pretty cheap -- single shows are only $6 -- but to get them, you have to be a member of Metallica's fan club, or Met Club, which requires a paid subscription. So, if you're interested you'll have to ask yourself an important question: Just how big of a Metallica fan am I?
