METALLICA: Second Annual 'All Within My Hands' Concert To Be Held In March 2020

METALLICA's second annual "All Within My Hands Foundation Helping Hands Concert And Auction" will be held on Saturday, March 28, 2020 at the Masonic in San Francisco, California. Just like last year's event at the same venue, the show will celebrate METALLICA's All Within My Hands non-profit foundation, which was launched in 2017 to help creating sustainable communities by tackling the issues of hunger and workforce education and encouraging volunteerism.

Says the band: "Mark your calendars to join us and see what we've been up to since the foundation formed in 2017, learn about the charities we've supported and the work we're doing in local communities, and we'll close out the night by hitting the stage for a live performance."

The first "All Within My Hands Foundation Helping Hands Concert And Auction" was held in November 2018.

In addition to acoustic versions of some of METALLICA's classic songs, the band performed covers of DEEP PURPLE's "When A Blind Man Cries", NAZARETH's "Please Don't Judas Me", BLUE ÖYSTER CULT's "Veteran Of The Psychic Wars" and Bob Seger's "Turn The Page".

Bandmembers James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo and Lars Ulrich were joined by a quartet of backing musicians who provided additional percussion, keyboards, strings and vocal harmony.

The event raised $1.3 million — money that went to food banks in cities the band played on its current "WorldWired" tour and carefully selected community colleges throughout the country. All Within My Hands is supported in these efforts by the American Association Of Community Colleges and Feeding America.

In its first six months of operation, the Foundation donated more than $750,000 to local food banks around the world — a practice the band and the Foundation continued on METALLICA's recent North American and European tours. They've donated at least $10,000 to local food banks in every city and met dedicated people who focus their daily lives on helping others.

The METALLICA family and the All Within My Hands foundation board members are committed to running an organization of the highest integrity where expenses are kept to a minimum and are paid for entirely by the band, the board, and friends who have worked with the band over many years and are excited to help in this mission. As such, 100% of all donations from fans and third parties go to the organizations AWMH supports.

Please mark your calendar to join us for a celebratory evening on March 28, 2020 at the Masonic in San Francisco with a...
