Metallica Announces Free Livestream Concert Fundraiser
Metallica is bringing back their popular #MetallicaMondays livestream series for one-night-only next week and for a good cause.
On Monday, May 24, the band will be streaming their September 6, 2018 show in Lincoln, Nebraska at Pinnacle Bank Arena for free on their YouTube channel. The live stream, which starts at 8 PM ET and can be viewed in the embedded video below, will act as a fundraiser for Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation as part of their Month of Giving initiative.
Metallica has had a lot of success raising funds through livestreams during the coronavirus pandemic. During the original run of #MetallicaMondays last year, fans donated over $100,000 to the All Within My Hands Foundation which partners with Feeding America, a non-profit that serves more than 200 food banks in the country.
In November 2020, Metallica hosted another livestream event and raised over $1.3 million. The event also featured an online auction with a number of items, including some of the instruments the band played during that performance.
