Metallica and its All Within My Hands foundation ended 2022 on a deafening high note, as its third Helping Hands Concert & Auction raised approximately $3,000,000—100% of which will go directly to All Within My Hands’ efforts supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, disaster relief and other critical local services.
 
Taking place December 16, 2022 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the Helping Hands benefit event was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and streamed live on Paramount+. Leaders from six non-profit organisations took the stage between sets from Greta Van Fleet, a guest appearance from St. Vincent, and the hosts of the evening, Metallica, who were introduced by none other than Robert Downey Jr. 
 
The funds raised from the Helping Hands Concert & 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,” said Peter Delgrosso, Executive Director, All Within My Hands.

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.
 
As part of the Helping Hands Concert & Auction, All Within My Hands honoured several mission-aligned organisations and provided grants to each to donate additional resources, including: Baby2BabyFirst StarFeeding AmericaWorld Central KitchenmikeroweWorks Foundation, and The Skatepark Project.
 
Additionally, the first donations generated by 2021’s The Metallica Blacklist compilation have been made—totaling over $1,000,000.
 
Hailed upon its release as “easily the most ambitious release of its kind” (Pitchfork), The Metallica Blacklist marked the 30th anniversary of the band’s landmark self-titled fifth album a/k/a The Black Album with a staggering array of passion and talent: 50+ artists contributing unique interpretations of their favourite tracks from the album, spanning a vast range of genres, generations, cultures, continents and more.

The Metallica Blacklist’s 53 tracks found singer/songwriters, country artists, electronic and hip hop artists sharing their love of these songs alongside punk rockers, indie darlings, icons of rock, metal, world music and many, many more…
 
All profits from The Metallica Blacklist are being divided evenly between All Within My Hands and charities chosen by the participating artists—including Happy Hippie Foundation (Miley Cyrus), Outlaw State of Kind (Chris Stapleton), RAINN (Phoebe Bridgers), Dhamma Mahavana (Weezer), Borne Cancer Fonden Denmark (Volbeat), St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (J Balvin), The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation For Autism (Jon Pardi), The Special Olympics (Cage The Elephant), Save The Children (Alessia Cara + The Warning, Ha*Ash), Camp Aranutiq (Ghost), and literally dozens more.
 
All Within My Hands is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation formed in 2017 as a way for the entire Metallica family to give back to communities that have supported the band by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical local services.

Metallica and All Within My Hands are committed to running an organisation of the highest integrity where expenses are kept to a minimum and are paid for entirely by the band, the board, and friends who have worked with the band over many years and are excited to help in this mission. 100% of proceeds from The Metallica Blacklist and the Helping Hands shows and auctions go directly to help those in need, with Metallica covering all expenses.

Tickets for Metallica: 72 Seasons – Global Premiere will on sale from Thursday 2nd March at metallica.film.
