Metallica to host The Helping Hands concert and auction

Metallica will host The Helping Hands concert and auction on 16 December 2022 at The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The previous show was live-streamed on 14 November 2020 and raised more than $1.8 million.

The funds raised in 2020 were used to work with partners at Feeding America and the American Association of Community Colleges, as well as various Covid-19 and disaster relief efforts.

All Within My Hands was established in 2017 as a way for the Metallica family to give back to communities supporting the band. All Within My Hands expenses are covered entirely by the band, the board, and friends who have worked with the band over many years, ensuring that 100% of proceeds go directly to help those in need.

To date, All Within My Hands has donated over $5.8 million to critical local services and the fight against food insecurity, working with partners around the world to feed more than 10 million people.

In addition, the foundation’s Metallica Scholars Initiative has pledged a total of $5.9 million in grants benefiting 33 community colleges across the USA.

Tickets will be on sale to the public from 10:00 am local time Friday, 23 September, with a two-ticket limit per customer. As always, 100% of proceeds from this year’s Helping Hands event—tickets, fees and auction items—will go directly to help those in need.

Tickets will be available from
