Metallica’s ‘Helping Hands Concert & Auction’ Raises Over 1.3M!

November 26, 2020

Good news! Metallica’s “Live & Acoustic From HQ: Helping Hands Concert & Auction” has been extended. They’re raising money for their All Within My Hands foundation.

You can see this worldwide concert on demand until 11:59 p.m. PST December 1 here!

This is Metallica’s first pay-per-view event (live-streamed on November 14) and it has raised over $1.3M so far. They’ll be working with Feeding America and the American Association Of Community Colleges and will work to support COVID-19 and disaster relief efforts too.

The band played acoustically, ripping thru “Blackened”, “Creeping Death”, “The Unforgiven”, “Now That We’re Dead”, “Nothing Else Matters” and “All Within My Hands” and a couple covers; Deep Purple’s “When A Blind Man Cries” and Bob Seger’s “Turn The Page”.

The electric set had a re-imagined version of “Disposable Heroes”, “Wasting My Hate” (performed for the first time since 2011), “For Whom The Bell Tolls”, “Master Of Puppets”, “Enter Sandman” and a cover of “The House Of The Rising Sun”!

The band had two players join them; mandolin player and multi-instrumentalist Avi Vinocur and keyboard player Henry Salvia. There was also a guest appearance from Hetfield’s son Castor and Ulrich’s son Layne (backing vocals and percussion to “All Within My Hands”).

Kirk Hammett said, “Metallica doesn’t do anything halfway. This is an example of that. We’ve helped so many people through our music. Now we want to help in a different way.”

Lars Ulrich said, “Thank you for supporting All Within My Hands and, even more importantly, thank you for supporting Metallica through thick and thin. We love you. We can’t wait to see you in all corners of the world as soon as possible.”

Which band would you like to see do some live-streamed shows?
