Since so much has happened over these last few months I don’t expect everyone to remember every move or activity we do here at the Media Command HQ but it is without question that we love doing the conventions and trade shows. I’m talking about the New York Comic Con, Toy Fair, Anime NYC and even the New York International Auto Show, NY Now and more. After so many of them cancelling because of the pandemic, I’m eager to get back to proper activity but this year has proven to be a crapshoot and its still weird so our friends at the Toy Insider are going virtual once again and extended PiercingMetal and its companion website “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” an invite to their second “Sweet Suite @Home” affair. It would be laid out in the same fashion as the 2020 affair which while fun was a tad confusing to get used to at the onset. This time around I prepped well in advance with the vendors I needed to “see” and was thinking I’ve gotten the hang of it all.

Metallica Announces 40th Anniversary Plans

The Press Release:
As hard as it is to believe, the band will be turning the big 4 – 0 this October. It’s a wild thing to wrap our heads around… it feels like just yesterday that we were hitting the stage playing our first show at Radio City in Anaheim, CA, in the spring of 1982! Okay, fair enough maybe that wasn’t just yesterday; so many things have happened since Lars and James got together in the fall of ’81… almost 2,000 live shows across seven continents, mind-blowing successes and crazy off-road adventures. It’s been a nutty ride and even though most of the time it feels like we’re just getting started, we’re excited to celebrate the past four decades with you. What better way to mark this milestone than to invite the worldwide Metallica Family to join us in our hometown of San Francisco, CA, where we will be performing two different live sets at Chase Center on December 17 and 19 for Fifth Members only!!

We were so in awe of the love, support, and dedication that came our way during the S&M2 concerts when fans from over 60 countries around the globe traveled to the City by the Bay for the weekend in September of 2019. You guys completely took over San Francisco and the unbelievably good vibes and sense of family inspired us to invite all of you to come back! In addition to our two shows at Chase Center, we will be curating other live music and comedy events, Blackened Whiskey tastings, and so much more all around the city during the long four-day weekend of celebrations starting on Thursday, December 16. Details and ticketing information for these various events will be announced as they are confirmed.

Finland’s own Symphonic wonder Nightwish have just announced a pair of special livestream events for next March. As you know these kinds of things aren’t new news anymore but we are finding bigger and bigger bands making this jump because touring just isn’t possible right now. We recently learned that KISS was going to do one (discussed HERE) and also the magnificent Trans-Siberian Orchestra as well (discussed HERE and happening tomorrow evening). Now let’s examine the bands announcement from their social networking.
