Watch Metallica Play Classics and Deep Cuts at Their Secret Show in Chicago!

Metallica played another surprise concert in a tiny venue compared to their usual arena gigs. They played a “pop-up concert” at The Metro in Chicago Monday night September 20, 2021, which only holds 1000 people. Tickets were announced by text and social media and were sold out in one hour. The tickets sold for just $19.83, a reference to the year 1983, when the band last appeared at Metro. The band played their hometown of San Francisco last thursday at The Independent, which holds a maximum occupancy of 500. The band will kickoff a headlien run of festivals this week at Louder Than Life, followed by Aftershock Sacramento, and Welcome to Rockville. Watch Metallica in Chicago!
