Metallica S&M Tribute Show with a symphony orchestra
In April 1999 american conductor Michael Kamen together with Metallica recorded a unique concert called S&M - Symphony and Metallica. Worldwide-known rockers backed by a San-Francisco Symphony played 21 song before the multi-thousand crowd. Because of complex arrangments the show had to be split in two days.
Later the band and the famour conducted received a Grammy for "The Call of Ktulu" track, and the double DVD became a cult. But the most intriguing fact about that concert was that it became unique literally! Even that the DVD turned multi-platinum, the band never tried to repeat that show. In a few years Michael Kamen died, and all hopes for this kind of a live show dissappeared. Moreover, it turned out to be the final recording of Jason Newsted as a Metallica bassist, and after that release the most famous rock band in the world got submerged into hiatus.
15 years later, a lot of fans would like to get a feeling of that legendary show, but the complexity of this grandiose performance scares off even professional show producers. But after longsome thinking, creative work over supercomplex arrangements, orchestral rehearsals, tiresome castings, creation of sound and light decors, a team of like-minded professionals dares to revive the legendary show, combine heavy metal with a symphony orchestra and to breathe a new life into classical hit singles: Nothing Else Matters, Enter Sandman, Master of Puppets...
Our musical art director is an Honored Artist and a conductor of the Presidential Orchestra. His musical team accompanied the best musicians in the world, like Sarah Connor and Dmitri Hvorostovsky. But one of the most interesting collaborations was working with legendary Scorpions.
Metallica Show went through dozens of rehearsals with comnpletely different set-ups - starting from a virtuoso quartet to a full 60-man symphonic orchestra. Persistent work of four top-level arrangers, a conductor and rock musicians allowed us to align every single note - bearing in mind that there are several thousand pages of scores! The heroes of the night are already reknown musicians not only in Russia; the audience always meets them with delight. It's not an exaggeration: some fans prefer Metallica Show over Metallica itself!
With a few dozens of gigs in Russia the show boasts more than 35 thousand tickets sold. After 5000+ people in Crocus City Hall the show returned to the heart of Moscow, the most prestigious and famous music hall in Russia - the Kremlin Palace. Six thousand seats, superb lighting, but, most importantly - the sound of incredible clarity and power.
Naturally the S&M songs are performed, but the real zest of the show are additional Metallica songs with special orchestral arrangements never heard before. Even Metallica themselves hadn't played them this way! Moreover, despite of the show complexity, the original two-day concert is performed at once throughout the overwhelming 2.5 hour production.
We have to mention that the show is held in English to match it with the best international music shows - and the project advances worldwide in 2018 already: the shows are planned in Paris, Prague, Mexico and Santiago.
Don't miss your chance to listen to a classic Metallica concert with the best possible production!
