Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Metallica’s second All Within My Hands Helping Hands Concert and Auction will be streamed online. The event will take place on Nov. 14 and will be filmed at the band’s headquarters in the North Bay.
As in 2018, the concert will be acoustic. Viewers will need to pay to watch and participate, with funds going to Metallica’s nonprofit foundation.
The band created All Within My Hands in 2017 to give back to communities that have supported the band. In 2020, the band has donated $645,000 to COVID-19 relief funds, including Feeding America, Direct Relief and charities assisting those in the entertainment and hospitality industries. The foundation has also donated $350,000 to aid those affected by the West Coast wildfires in 2020, as well as hundreds of thousands more fire victims in California and Australia over the last two years. The foundation’s Metallica Scholars Initiative, in its second year, supported by a $1.5 million grant benefiting 15 community colleges across the country.
The pay-per-view event will take place on Saturday, Nov. 14, at 2 p.m. Pacific. Tickets cost between $15 and $95. Perks include a T-shirt bundle, audio download and the ability to be featured on a video wall for a song during the performance. Ticket-holders can watch the performance as many times as they want for 48 hours from when they first start the stream. Find more information on ticket sales and VIP packages at Nugs.TV.
