Metal Hammer And So What! Magazine Present… Metallica: The 30th Anniversary Event!
Metal Hammer is stoked to announce an awesome, one-off publication of a special edition of Metallica’s So What! Magazine – Metallica: The 30th Anniversary Event. This special edition will commemorate Metallica’s 30th Anniversary celebration that took place at San Francisco’s iconic Fillmore Theatre in December 2011, and will hit newsstands nationwide on May 14, 2012 and is available for pre-order now at www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/metallica.
“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 immortalizing that unique, incomparable and unforgettable week in magazine form, our first So What! edition to leave the confines of our fan club.”
“This is an incredibly exciting partnership,” said Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas. “Metallica’s 30th anniversary shows were history in the making, and the chance to work with So What! – easily one of the metal world’s best loved and respected fanzines – was simply too good to pass up.”
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 favorites 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 7-inch vinyl single of ‘So What!’ and ‘Through The Never’, recorded during four shows last year.
