Metallica recently kicked off their first of two live-streamed 40th-anniversary concerts at San Francisco’s Chase Center on December 17th to a sold-out crowd in their hometown. It also featured Queens Of The Stone Age’s Jon Theodore. Metallica also recently suffered a sound problem at last show of 2021.

Following the show, guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo turned up at the legendary Fillmore to perform with their cover act, The Wedding Band, featuring Whitfield Crane (Ugly Kid Joe), Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), Doc Coyle (Bad Wolves) and Jon Theodore (Queens Of The Stone Age). Fan-filmed video is available below.
British rock and roll photographer Ross Haflin recently posted a picture of Jon Theodore to wish him on his birthday. He also confirmed his presence in San Francisco last weekend with The Wedding Band.
