Warriors officials, symphony music director Michael Tilson Thomas, Metallica’s James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich and San Francisco Mayor London Breed shared the news at a press conference last week on site, before officials announced other upcoming arena shows, including Matthews, Phil Collins (Oct. 17); the Black Keys (Nov. 20); The Chainsmokers, with 5 Seconds of Summer and Lennon Stella (Nov. 29); and Andrea Bocelli and the San Francisco Symphony appearing together for the first time (Dec. 5).
