The Press Release:
Yes… you read that right… LIVE!! We have a new date for our rescheduled Helping Hands Concert & Auction and we’re hoping that EVERYONE will join us this time! We’ll be streaming LIVE from HQ on Saturday, November 14th for our first-ever worldwide pay-per-view event where we’ll perform a special acoustic show to benefit our foundation… as we play, you watch, all in real-time!
This will be our second acoustic concert to raise funds for All Within My Hands, and while we’re disappointed that we cannot all be together in person, we’re very excited that fans around the world will be able to watch the performance as it happens in the comfort of your own surroundings. We’ll kick off the show at 2 PM Pacific Time that day, so hopefully, most of you can join us then, but if not, never fear… your ticket will allow you to watch the show as many times as you like within a 48-hour period once you start the stream.
Tickets are on sale now with four packages available: watch the show, add on the event shirt and audio download, or even join us digitally on our virtual fan wall for one song. Get your ticket at 2nu.gs/Metallica.
We’ll also have some incredible auction items and experiences available for you to bid on a little closer to the show. As always, 100% of money raised, including ticket fees and auction items, goes directly to help someone in need; we pick up all the expenses to produce the show.
We’re incredibly proud of what All Within My Hands has accomplished, especially this year with so many of our friends in need. In 2020 alone, AWMH has donated $645,000 to a number of COVID-19 related relief funds including Feeding America, Direct Relief, and several charities assisting those suddenly without work in the entertainment and hospitality industries. This fall, the Foundation also donated $350,000 to several agencies aiding those affected by wildfires up and down the West Coast. Finally, Metallica Scholars is now in its second year, supported by a $1.5 million grant benefiting 15 community colleges across the country.
We hope you’ll join us for this very unique event on November 14th as all ticket sales will directly benefit the Foundation. We look forward to continuing these programs in 2021 and beyond with your help. For more info about All Within My Hands, please visit AllWithinMyHands.org (linked below).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds like something interesting for sure and truth be told, I’ve not participated in a single streaming event since all this pandemic stuff began. I’m glad that so many bands are doing them though and the fact that Metallica’s is for a charity is even all the more awesome. I might just break my streak of not watching any of these for this one and as I close up this announcement I wonder what you readers think about it all. You can chime in down below in the comments and know that I will return soon with more stuff as soon as I see something interesting.
