Metallica Mondays concert series raises $100k for band’s charitable foundation

Metallica have announced that their weekly streaming concert series, “Metallica Mondays”, has raised more than $100,000 for its All Within My Hands foundation.

The band launched the feature in March as the global pandemic continued to spread, and just wrapped up it up this week with video of a 2017 performance in Mexico City.

“When Metallica started the weekly #MetallicaMondays concert streaming series,” says the band in a statement, “they set out to provide something to maybe help fans get through quarantine; a bit of entertainment, a weekly event to bond over with friends and family, a minor distraction to go with dinner on Mondays. The idea was to try to help out our friends worldwide in their own rock-n-roll way. But when it comes to helping, All Within My Hands is all about giving back to those who need it most. This Foundation is close to our hearts for many reasons, but what really continues to inspire all of us, is how YOU have kept it close to your hearts.

“Throughout these #MetallicaMondays, the band paired the concerts with fundraisers. It seemed like a way we could bond together to support so many hurting from the effects of the pandemic with the plan to make modest donations to Feeding America and Direct Relief. What we didn’t know then was that the need for a major response was ahead of us, or that AWMH would eventually contribute $645k to COVID relief efforts!”

“Over the course of 23 weeks, you have totally blown us away,” adds the group. “YOU RAISED OVER $100,000 FOR AWMH! At the core of All Within My Hands is the same value at the core of Metallica: we are stronger together. When the Metallica Family activates for a cause, you help us make a sustainable impact in a way that four people simply can’t make on their own. We want to extend a heartfelt thank you and HELL YEAH for your involvement in our desire to make the world a better place.”

The AWMH Foundation was established by Metallica as a means to invest in the people and places that have supported the band, while also providing a mechanism for fans to become engaged in philanthropy and volunteerism; to learn more, visit

Metallica will release a new live package, “S&M2”, on August 28; the project presents material from a two shows last fall with the San Francisco Symphony as the pair officially opened the new Chase Center in San Francisco, CA, while also marking the 20th Anniversary of their 1999 live performance recording “S&M.”
