Metal Hammer To Launch Metallica Special
Metal Hammer – Classic Rock‘s sister magazine – has announced a one-off publication of a special edition of Metallica’s So What! fanzine – Metallica: The 30th Anniversary Event. Come inside for all the details.
This special edition will commemorate Metallica’s 30th Anniversary celebration that took place at San Francisco’s iconic Fillmore Theatre in December 2011. It will hit newsstands nationwide on May 14, 2012.
“I couldn’t think of a cooler way to round out the first 30 years than how the Fillmore week played out in December,” says Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. “And I can’t think of a cooler way to start off the next 30 years than immortalising that unique, incomparable and unforgettable week in magazine form, our first So What! edition to leave the confines of our fan club.”
Metallica: The 30th Anniversary Event will be a 128-page magazine featuring exclusive live and behind-the-scenes photos from the four historic nights at the Fillmore Theatre, post-Fillmore interviews with all four members of Metallica, a few of the fan favourites who joined the band on stage, and a look behind the scenes on how the shows came together.
The issue will also feature an exclusive seven-inch vinyl single of So What! and Through The Never, recorded during the four shows last year.
