Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo wants to play S&M3 in 2029. Last year, Metallica played a few concerts alongside the San Francisco Symphony dubbed S&M2.
The famous thrash metal band recently released its 2019’s S&M2 show. Also, which celebrated the 20th anniversary of the heavy metal band’s 1999 orchestra live album. S&M2 is the live concert film from Metallica & The San Francisco Symphony. This is the concert event of the year! S&M2 features 20 songs (over 2.5 hours of music) from the two-night event that opened San Francisco’s new Chase Center, with also many Metallica tracks and two unique classical songs chosen by San Francisco Symphony Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas.
Metallica band’s Robert Trujillo just answered, “No Leaf Clover and a special double-bass rendition of Cliff Burton’s masterpiece (Anesthesia) – Pulling Teeth” and replied:
“It was a tremendous statement. I just love the power of the acoustic bass and any acoustic instrument. Scott came in to basically present the idea. Scott is a tremendous musician on all fronts and this is his arrangement. Cliff Burton put his time and energy into this piece, which has not just Cliff’s solo itself. But he’s incorporated classical elements of that instrument into this piece, so there’s a very collaborative spirit in it.
He also answered for Kerrang, “Do you think we could see an S&M3 in 10 years’ time?”:
“I think so. To me, S&M2 is an extension of where we are now and how we continue to grow. We enjoy challenges, so if there’s an S&M3 and we’re still healthy and kicking ass then I know it’s something we’d take on again. All Within My Hands, the acoustic version of that, having Kirk sing a harmony part with me – I’d like to see more of that in S&M3 (laughs). That was also a special moment for us as a band.
I know it was special for James – he really enjoyed having that support for his vocal on that song. There were a lot of moments where we were proud of what was happening – whether it was Scott and Lars doing (Anesthesia) – Pulling Teeth or All Within My Hands or us playing a non-Metallica song with the orchestra, it keeps you on your toes and keeps things exciting. I’m sure, 10 years (S&M3 in 2029) from now, if we have enough left in the tank then we’ll definitely take it on. Especially, Lars Ulrich, he’s always pushing for the challenge, it’s how he’s wired.”
