The Blu-Ray features the concert and behind the scenes bonus footage.
Metallica and San Francisco Symphony’s September 6 & 8, 2019 S&M2 concerts were historic on multiple levels: They served as the grand opening of San Francisco’s Chase Center, reunited the band and Symphony for the first time since the 1999 performances captured on the Grammy-winning S&M album, and featured the first-ever symphonic renditions of songs written and released since those original S&M shows.
The sold out shows were rapturously received by the 40,000 fans who traveled from nearly 70 countries, as well as the media: Rolling Stone raved “the group proved that anything was possible,” Variety noted an atmosphere “buzzing with excitement,” while the Mercury News witnessed "a concert that fans will be talking about for decades to come,” and Consequence of Sound hailed "a true celebration of Metallica and their musical prowess.”
Desperate for a splashy win, Democratic political consultant Gary Zimmer (Steve Carell) was taken with a viral town hall video of plain-speaking Wisconsin farmer/veteran Jack Hastings (Chris Cooper). Gary successfully pitches Jack on a mayoral run in his deep-red community-a task that gets tougher when Zimmer's old Republican nemesis, Faith Brewster (Rose Byrne), lends her savvy to the incumbent. Wheelhouse satire for writer/director Jon Stewart co-stars Mackenzie Davis, Brett Sexton. 101 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English. Two-disc set.
