Hot on the heels of tonight’s Ye/Drake concert live stream in Los Angeles, Prime Video has announced its upcoming broadcast Metallica 40th Anniversary Live, two shows in the band’s hometown celebrating their decades of headbanging.
The shows will take place live from the Chase Center in San Francisco on December 17 and 19. In-person tickets are available exclusively to members of the band’s Fifth Member fan club. But streaming starts at 9 p.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET and is free with or without a subscription to The Coda Collection or Prime Video.
The Coda Collection is a collection of hundreds of music documentaries, concerts, and related episodic series available to Amazon Prime Video subscribers.
Like tonight’s event in Los Angeles, Metallica’s broadcasts will stream on Amazon Music, Amazon Music’s Twitch channel, and Prime Video. There will also be a mini film festival on the 18th, featuring Cliff ‘Em All, trick stunts and Orgullo, Pasión, y Gloria: Tres Noches en la Ciudad de México. These last two films will be available on the Coda Collection Prime video channel for the weekend.
The live stream and anniversary film festival kicks off an extensive partnership between The Coda Collection and Metallica, which will include a full lineup of concert films, documentaries and additional content spanning the four-decade career of the group. This content will debut on the channel exclusively throughout 2022.
Metallica and Amazon Music will also launch “The Metallica Takeover”, a guest-hosted station available exclusively to Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers and Prime members. The band members will break down stories spanning the evolution of their music, to a curated soundtrack featuring their greatest hits, fan favorites and deep cuts.
Outside of the partnership with Amazon, Metallica is hosting a flurry of “Takeover Weekend” events and celebrations in San Francisco between the 16th and 19th. They include a block party, local bands, community volunteer events, panels , exhibitions in galleries and, of course, a whiskey brunch.
