The Press Release:
It’s almost here… our 40th anniversary celebration is right around the corner! We’re looking forward to hitting the stage in San Francisco at Chase Center with so many of our friends visiting from around the globe those two nights next week. While we wish each and every one of you could join us, we know you can’t all be in the house. So we’re incredibly excited to announce that our friends at Amazon will be streaming both shows live, as they happen, worldwide and for free!
Kicking off our partnership with The Coda Collection, the exclusive free, global live streams on December 17 and 19 will start at 9 PM PST / 12 AM EST / 6 AM CET / 2 PM JST. No matter where you are those nights – or depending on your timezone, the following day – you’ll be able to watch live from home or on mobile via Amazon Music, Amazon Music’s Twitch channel, and Prime Video (with or without Prime on-demand viewing Membership). The shows will then be made available exclusively at The Coda Collection/Prime Video Channel for subsequent viewing in 2022.
In between shows during the weekend, you can continue your virtual 40th anniversary experience with the “SF Takeover Film Fest,” including Cunning Stunts and Orgullo, Pasión, y Gloria: Tres Noches en la Ciudad de México at the Coda Collection/Prime Video Channel. The 40th anniversary live stream and films are just the beginning as The Coda Collection will include a full slate of concert films, documentaries, and other nuggets, all airing on the channel exclusively throughout 2022. We’ll be joining an impressive array of artists, including the Foo Fighters, Jimi Hendrix, Grateful Dead, and many more featured on the streaming service.

We’re also teaming up with DJ Mode on Amazon Music to release “The Metallica Takeover.” Our station will be available exclusively to Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers and Prime members. All set to a soundtrack of our album cuts, deep tracks, songs featured on The Metallica Blacklist, and some of our other favorite artists, there will also be exclusive interviews and other features giving listeners something unique each time they tune in. You can check out “The Metallica Takeover” now on Amazon Music by simply saying, “Alexa, play The Metallica Takeover” in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android or on Alexa-enabled devices.
Whew… so many ways to catch up with ’Tallica! Whether you are traveling to San Francisco or relaxing at home, we hope you can join us to celebrate an incredible 40 years!!
