Metallica announces “Helping Hands” 2022 benefit concert


Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation will bring its ‘Helping Hands Concert & Auction’ back for its third year, taking place on Friday, December 16th at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles and featuring performances by Metallica and “special guests.”

Tickets will be on sale to the public from 10 am local time Friday, September 23rd with a two-ticket limit per customer via AXS. As always, all proceeds from the event — tickets, fees, and auction items — will “go directly to help those in need.”  The livestream benefit show back in November 2020 raised funds for partners at Feeding America and the American Association of Community Colleges, as well as various COVID and disaster relief efforts via Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation.

The All Within My Hands Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation focused on creating sustainable communities by tackling issues including hunger and workforce education, established in 2017 as a way for the Metallica family to give back to communities that have supported the band.  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.
