S&M2 is the sequel to the band's 1999 album and concert film S&M, and will be filmed at Chase Center in San Francisco this September. The film will feature the first live arrangements of S&M songs in 20 years, as well as songs written and released since the original show.
Fans who can't be there to see it live will have the opportunity to visit one of 3,000 movie theaters around the world to watch the concert film for one night only, on Oct. 9. Tickets for the film are on sale now.
The original concerts were conducted by the late Michael Kamen in 1999 at the Berkeley Community Theatre before he passed away from a heart attack in 2003. The conductor for S&M2 will be Michael Tilson Thomas, the music director at the San Francisco Symphony, as well as the artistic director for the New World Symphony.
