Metallica raising funds for Texas flood victims

Metallica have partnered with ESPN and Circuit Of The Americas to assist the victims of the recent floods in Texas by donating all money raised from the sale of downloads of their upcoming June 6 show at the X Games to the American Red Cross of Central Texas.

All formats of the download – including the high definition versions – are being offered at for a discounted price of $5.00 each through July 15.

Metallica will perform the national anthem and a headline concert at the 2015 X Games in Austin on Saturday.

The band were joined by pioneering skateboarder Tony Hawk to make the announcement of their appearance at the June 4-7 event, which showcases the best in extreme sports.

“We are looking forward to seeing everyone out at the X Games this Saturday in Austin,” says the group.
