Metallica’s newest ‘Helping Hands’ profit raised $3 million (£2.4 million) for charity.
The heavy steel legends – comprising James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Rob Trujilo, and Kirk Hammett – introduced out St. Vincent and had Greta Van Fleet carry out on the fundraising occasion for his or her All Within My Hands non-profit on the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on December 16.
Peter Delgrosso, govt director at All Within My Hands, stated: “The funds raised from the ‘Helping Hands Concert and Auction’ will have a lasting impact on All Within My Hands’ ability to grow our Metallica Scholars initiative, combat hunger, and aid in response to natural disasters.
“The Los Angeles event was the largest fundraiser in our history, and we profoundly appreciate the generosity of everyone involved. We could not have achieved these results otherwise.”
Among the organisations to learn from the cash raised will likely be Baby2Baby, First Star, Feeding America, World Central Kitchen, mikeroweWorks Foundation and The Skatepark Project.
The band’s star-studded 2021 covers album ‘The Metallica Blacklist’ made a whopping $1 million (£824,430).
Metallica and their collaborators – together with Miley Cyrus, Phoebe Bridgers and Chris Stapleton – have chosen the non-profits they need the cash to go to.
Miley selected her Happy Hippie Foundation, which she based in 2014 to supply “homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations with consistent” help.
Phoebe opted for RAINN (The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network), and Chris and his spouse Morgane picked their Outlaw State Of Kind fund, which helps “a variety of causes close to their heart.”
Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation beforehand donated $100,000 to these affected by California’s devastating wildfires in 2018.
Meanwhile, the ‘Nothing Else Matters’ rockers are set to launch their eleventh studio album ’72 Seasons’ on April 14.
