UPDATED: Metallica to headline North Bay fires benefit concert at AT&T Park

Band Together Bay Area, North Bay Fires

Metallica will headline Band Together Bay Area, a fundraiser concert for the victims of the North Bay wildfires. The concert will take place at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Nov. 9, and tickets will go on sale Friday.

Dave Matthews and Bay Area rapper G-Eazy will also perform, as well as newly announced acts Dead & Company, Raphael Saadiq and Rancid.

One hundred percent of proceeds, as well as all ticket sales fees, will go to the Tipping Point Community‘s fund for those impacted by the Atlas, Tubbs and other large fires that scorched thousands of acres and displaced residents in Sonoma, Napa, Mendacino and other Bay Area counties.

The concert is sponsored by Live Nation, Another Planet, Salesforce, Google, the San Francisco Giants and others, who as of this report have already raised nearly $9 million toward recovery.

“We’re extremely saddened by the suffering that so many are feeling in the Bay Area, but are also inspired by the enormous outpouring of love and support from all around the country and want to jump in and help in the way we know how to–through music,” the band said in a statement on its website.

Tickets are $49.50 to $199.50 and go on public sale Friday at 10 a.m. at bandtogetherbayarea.org and Ticketmaster.com.
