“Holy shit, that was one for the books.
Inaugural night at the @Chase_Center in San Francisco….’Tallica, the San Francisco Symphony and 18,000 of our closest friends. The energy was otherworldly.

Thank you to our two incredible conductors, @mtilsonthomas & @eoutwater…thank you to the @sfsymphony for this incredible collaboration and for being cool and collected as the madness unfolded.

And finally thank you to all our friends, who came from near and far, and some of you came from really far away, to join in a special event and evening. See you again mañana. Much love. #wanna #SandM2″
