Metallica Gives Back


From global causes to local ones, we’ve always taken pride in giving back to the community. We’ve played concerts and festivals such as The Bridge School Benefit Concerts, Live Earth and Global Citizen, donated proceeds from ticket sales and album releases to various charitable organizations including Fondation de France’s Give For France and Gilda’s Club NYC, and met with many Make-A-Wish participants. Long time advocates of local food banks, we give back at every tour stop in North America and Europe, and in the Fall of 2016 celebrated the release of our current album with a series of five shows, donating proceeds from all ticket sales to food banks in New York City, London, Toronto, Los Angeles and Oakland.

All Within My Hands is taking things to the next level. While the band will continue to support many causes through benefit concerts (for example, 2017's Band Together Bay Area Concert to support Napa, Sonoma, and the surrounding counties after the Northern California wildfires), AWMH is intended to have an even greater impact through a sustained and focused philanthropic commitment and hopes to inspire others to join us in making the world a better place through local community support.
