Metallica gives a boatload of money back to communities

METALLICA has donated approximately $1.6 million to various local charities during the band's just-completed summer 2019 European leg of the "WorldWired" tour.

The donations were made over the course of 25 shows through the band's non-profit foundation All Within My Hands, which was established in 2017 as a means to invest in the people and places that have supported the band.

In its first six months of operation, All Within My Hands 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.
