Metallica To Livestream Their Annual Benefit Show ‘The Helping Hands Concert’


Thrash metal’s reigning kings Metallica will be livestreaming their final show of 2022. The group’s ‘The Helping Hands Concert‘ will be streaming live on Paramount+, Pluto and MTV‘s YouTube channel as it happens on December 16th at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA.

Funds raised from the concert and its accompanying auction will go towards the band’s All Within My Hands Foundation, which they have used for their various philanthropic pursuits over the years, including educational grants, helping feed the less fortunate and disaster relief.

Late night talk show host/comedian Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the aforementioned concert, which will find Greta Van Fleet opening. The band commented of the matter:

“We’re looking forward to celebrating the achievements of All Within My Hands in our final show of the year, the Helping Hands Concert & Auction at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Friday, December 16. This will be the third time we hit the stage to benefit the Foundation, but the very first time that it will be streamed live with a full audience in the house, thanks to our friends at Paramount+.

In another first, we’re also honored to announce that Jimmy Kimmel will be joining us to host the show! Make sure to tune in early as it all kicks off at 5:30 PM PST streaming live on Paramount+ and simulcast on Pluto and MTV’s YouTube channel. Don’t miss the special guests and presentations, Greta Van Fleet’s set, and a few surprises before we hit the stage.

We’ll also have some amazing items and experiences that will be auctioned off starting December 5 to benefit the Foundation, with 100% of ticket and auction proceeds going directly to those in need. Established in 2017, All Within My Hands works with partners around the world to combat food insecurity, provide funds in areas of natural disaster, and support education with the ground-breaking Metallica Scholars program, now in its fourth year.”
