Metallica’s Streaming Concert Series Raises $100,000 For All Within My Hands Foundation

Metallica’s weekly #MetallicaMondays streaming concert series has raised more than $100,000 for their All Within My Hands foundation.

The band launched the series at the beginning of the pandemic as way to give their fans live entertainment. The series closed this week with their 2017 Mexico City show.

“Throughout these #MetallicaMondays, the band paired the concerts with fundraisers,” reads a statement on the foundation’s website. “It seemed like a way we could bond together to support so many hurting from the effects of the pandemic with the plan to make modest donations to Feeding America and Direct Relief. What we didn’t know then was that the need for a major response was ahead of us, or that AWMH would eventually contribute $645k to COVID relief efforts!”

“Over the course of 23 weeks, you have totally blown us away. YOU RAISED OVER $100,000 FOR AWMH! At the core of All Within My Hands is the same value at the core of METALLICA: we are stronger together. When the METALLICA Family activates for a cause, you help us make a sustainable impact in a way that four people simply can’t make on their own. We want to extend a heartfelt thank you and HELL YEAH for your involvement in our desire to make the world a better place.”

All the #MetallicaMondays shows are available to watch on their YouTube channel.

Metallica recently announced their first live show of 2020 as part of the Encore Drive-In Nights series. The show was filmed at an undisclosed location in Northern California and will premiere at outdoor and drive-in theaters across the US and Canada on August 29th. Get tickets here.
