If you’re one of the unlucky people who isn’t going to see Metallica reunite with the San Fransisco Symphony, we have good news for you!

The S&M2 anniversary concerts will take place at the Chase Center in San Francisco on September 6 and 8. They will then be featured at 3,000 movie theaters around the world on October 9.

The first Symphony & Metallica aka S&M took place over two nights in 1999 and were conducted by Michael Kamen. This year’s commemorative concerts will see the group perform tunes from the original S&M shows, as well as new songs. The event will be conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, who is presently the music director at the San Francisco Symphony.

Tickets go on sale August 7.
