Robert Trujillo of Metallica hopes the guys can perform again with the San Francisco Symphony in 2029 for a S&M3 concert

Metallica recently announced the release of their new, “S&M2” box set, which will chronicle the metal band’s two performances last year with the San Francisco Symphony. The gigs were in honor of the 20th anniversary of Metallica’s 1999 live album, “S&M,” which was accompanied by the San Francisco Symphony.

Now, Metallica bass player Robert Trujillo says he would love to make a S&M3 happen.

“We enjoy challenges, so if there’s an S&M3 and we’re still healthy and kicking a** then I know it’s something we’d take on again,” Trujillo told Kerrang! magazine.

Trujillo wasn’t a member of Metallica for the first S&M performance, so being a part of the S&M2 performances was a special thrill for him. He says that having a full orchestra behind him paved the way for him to experiment more, which he would like to continue doing going forward.

“‘All Within My Hands’, the acoustic version of that, having [guitarist] Kirk [Hammett] sing a harmony part with me — I’d like to see more of that in S&M3,” Trujillo said. “That was also a special moment for us as a band, I know it was special for James (Hetfield) — he really enjoyed having that support for his vocal on that song.”

He added, regarding a possible S&M 3 show, “I’m sure, 10 years from now, if we have enough left in the tank then we’ll definitely take it on. Especially Lars (Ulrich), he’s always pushing for the challenge, it’s how he’s wired.”

Metallica’s “S&M2” box set will arrive on Aug. 28.
