Chase Center, the Warriors’ new stadium, will get christened Sept. 6 with a concert featuring Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony, and the Dave Matthews Band follows quickly on Sept. 10.

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).
