Metallica Gives Back


The band has played several concerts and festivals aiding a variety of causes from the Bridge School (appearing three times) and the MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concerts to the Live Earth and Global Citizen festivals.

In 2016 Metallica played new album release concerts in five cities, donating proceeds from tickets sales to local food banks and other local charities.

In 2017 the band played at Band Together Bay Area, a benefit concert for victims of the California North Bay wildfires. Benefiting, the event raised $17 million through ticket sales, sponsorships and online donations.
