Metallica’s latest ticketed benefit live stream, which was aired on 14 November, has raised over $1.3 million for their charitable All Within My Hands Foundation. The show saw the band perform two separate sets: an acoustic set and an electric set.
The shows’ success has extended the time the two sets will be available to view online until 11 PM PT, 1 December 2020. The electric set can be previewed below, and you can purchase tickets for both here.
All Within My Hands currently supports several organisations: Feeding America, Direct Relief, Live Nation’s Crew Nation, the Bartender Emergency Assistance Program, and MusiCare’s COVID-19 relief fund.
During the show, frontman James Hetfield expressed his gratitude to fans who attended, saying, “We’re super grateful to be a part of this and glad you’re here to witness it and be part of it as well.”
“All your help is very much appreciated. And the fact that we get to play is a big bonus, right? We get to play, we get to employ some people here, we get to help out. It’s a win-win-win everywhere.”
The show comprised an eight-song acoustic set (previewed above), as well as a six-song electric one (previewed below). Among acoustic renditions of Blackened and Now That We’re Dead were also covers of Deep Purple’s When A Blind Man Cries and The Animals’ The House Of The Rising Sun.
Earlier in the year, the All Within My Hands foundation made a number of notable donations to COVID-19 relief causes, and the band hosted a ‘month of giving,’ highlighting various charities.
