WATCH: Fan-shot footage from Metallica's first 'S&M2' concert

The final cut is going to be awesome!

Metallica have finished the first of two 'S&M2' shows with the San Francisco Symphony, and from the first fan-shot footage we've seen, it looks even better than the original 'S&M' concert 20 years ago.

The thrash metal legends performed a 20-song set list supported by the 75-member orchestra. The full show will air in local cinemas next month, you can find tickets here.

See some of the footage from the first show below, starting with "The Ecstasy of Gold" and including "Moth Into Flame," "All Within My Hands" and "Master of Puppets."

You can go one better and see Metallica play live at Auckland's Mt Smart on 2 November. Get your tickets here.
