Metallica Raised Over $1.3 Million For Charity With Recent ‘Helping Hands Concert & Auction’


Metallica‘s recent livestreamed performance of their annual ‘Helping Hands Concert & Auction‘ raised over $1.3 million for the band’s nonprofit charity, the All Within My Hands Foundation. That set was part acoustic and part electric and was streamed from the band’s own HQ on November 14th. You can purchase and watch it on demand here up until December 02nd.

The Metallica camp commented of the success of the concert and auction:

“So many of you have already supported us by watching, donating, and participating in the online auction. Once again, your generosity and kindness have blown us away! Thanks to all of you and our generous sponsors, our first-ever pay-per-view event that streamed live a little over a week ago has raised over $1.3 million! Those funds will be used to work with our partners at Feeding America and the American Association of Community Colleges, along with supporting COVID-19 and disaster relief efforts in the coming months.

There are so many people to thank who made this event happen that we don’t know where to start! From the sponsors and those who donated auction items to the mighty Metallica crew who transformed HQ into one giant interactive party; to all of you who purchased tickets and contributed in any way you were able, and to the AWMH Executive Board and Board of Advisors, thank you! Oh, and let’s not forget the musicians who joined us for all the fun, Avi and Henry. This was truly an amazing effort and we hope that the work that All Within My Hands does continues to inspire you as much as it does us.”
