Turning 40 is a big deal, and even more so when you're a band that's reached a full four decades of music. You don't get to 40 without doing something right, and Metallica have definitely done plenty right. So, to celebrate the big 4-0, Metallica are doing it up big time by announcing a 40th Anniversary San Francisco takeover.

"When we first told you about the two shows at Chase Center on Dec. 17 and 19, we also promised a full weekend of ’Tallica family vibes with curated live music, Blackened Whiskey tastings and other events starting the night before the first show," state the band. "Well… we’re back with all the details."

The festivities start off on Thursday, Dec. 16 with White Reaper, who appeared on the Metallica Blacklist album, playing alongside Taipei Houston (featuring Lars Ulrich's sons) at August Hall. The band also tease that other Blacklist artists Goodnight, Texas and Kamasi Washington will also be hitting the stage around town during the weekend at various venues, while OTTTO, Taipei Houston and Bastardane, who they promise "a few of the musicians onstage may look somewhat familiar!"

The band's association with Blackened Whiskey will also have a presence throughout the weekend. There will be welcome and pre-show parties, specialty cocktails and drink specials available. The Official Metallica 40th Anniversary Kick-Off Party backed by Blackened American Whiskey is set for Friday (Dec. 17) at the Executive Order Bar & Lounge. That same night, The Wedding Band, Goodnight, Texas and Bastardane will play The Fillmore.
