Watch METALLICA Play Surprise Club Concert in Chicago

Metal legends Metallica played a surprise concert at Metro in Chicago, Ill this past Monday Sept. 20, 2021. The venue made the announcement at 1:30 p.m. and within an hour, the show was completely sold out. The tickets sold for just $19.83, a reference to the year 1983, which is when the band last appeared at Metro.

METALLICA, which played a "surprise" concert at The Independent in San Francisco last Thursday (September 16), announced the Chicago concert on social media, writing: "THAT was way too much fun last week as we finally played in front of real live fans for the first time in over two years in our hometown of San Francisco. So why not do it again. This time we're in Chicago and we'll be hitting the stage at the storied Metro on Clark Street tonight... our first time back there since 1983!!"

Metro didn't reveal how many tickets were sold, but the venue holds about 1,000 people.
