SAN FRANCISCO — Metallica, today, announced an acoustic concert that will benefit the band’s All Within My Hands Foundation.
The Nov. 3 performance, called The Helping Hands Concert and Auction, will be held at the Masonic in San Francisco. Cage the Elephant will open, with its own acoustic set.
All of the money raised will go to the nonprofit, which the band started last year to combat hunger and workplace education, and to encourage volunteerism. At the concert and auction, fans will be able to learn about the organizations that have benefited from All Within My Hands. In its first six months, the foundation donated more than $750,000 to food banks around the world. Metallica has personally donated $10,000 to a food bank in each city the band has played on its WorldWired Tour.
Tickets in the balcony and a limited number of floor seats will be available via Ticketmaster on Friday 10 a.m. The band is also giving away two tickets and the other seats will be auctioned.
