Besides their own set, Apocalyptica also joined Metallica on stage for a few songs (check out fan-filmed footage below). After several supports for Metallica (the first one being in Helsinki on November 18th and 19th, 1996) this was the very first time the two bands actually played together. The concert this Monday launched a week long anniversary party which Metallica are holding exclusively for their MetClub members in San Francisco.
Eicca Toppinen says: 'What can you do when Metallica invites you to perform at their birthday party? You can only say YES!!!
We are honored and very pleased to be part of this unique event. Metallica have always been one of our greatest influences which makes this performance such a special experience for us. Cliff, James, Lars, Kirk, Rob and Jason.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!'
Apocalyptica started their world-wide career by releasing Plays Metallica by Four Cellos 15 years ago. Since then the band has developed an incomparable style of their own material. Their latest release was the band's seventh studio-album The 7th Symphony. Upon leaving San Francisco, Apocalyptica will continue their tour with more shows in Finland followed by an extensive Latin-American tour in January.
