MetallicaMetallica has announced a string of shows to celebrate their 30th anniversary together. Anchored by bassist Robert Trujillo, the metal veterans will be playing December 5, 7, 9 and 10 at the Fillmore in San Francisco, with tickets only available to their fan club members. Official members will be treated to $6 tickets, or admission to all four shows for $19.81 in accordance with ticket prices from back in the day.

The group says they’ll be pulling out all the stops for the celebration.

“These unique shows will include special guests and events, rare songs, varied set lists, odds and ends, and all the nutty stuff you expect from Metallica… fun for the entire family!” a statement on the band’s site said. “Come to the Bay Area and spend the week with us to not only close out 2011 out with a bang, but to celebrate over three decades worth of craziness.”
