Dubbed as S&M², the classic rockers made the official announcement on their website, sharing that they will be playing at the San Francisco's Chase Center arena on September 6, writing, "Not only will this be the inaugural event at the new arena in the city, but we will be playing once again with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra as we join together to commemorate this historic addition to the Bay Area and mark the 20th anniversary of the S&M concerts and album release."

Metallica later shared the posters of the concert with fans on social media platforms.
