Metallica extend Helping Hands benefit show livestream

Metallica have extended the pay-per-view streaming period for their recent “Live & Acoustic From HQ: Helping Hands Concert” due “to popular demand.”

Streamed from the band’s headquarters in San Rafael, CA via nugs.tv, the group delivered two sets – one acoustic and one electric – in support of their All Within My Hands Foundation.

The 8-song acoustic set mixed tracks from their catalogue alongside covers of tunes by Deep Purple (“When A Blind Man Cries”) and Bob Seger (“Turn The Page”), while the electric set delivered 6 songs and included the band’s version of the folk classic, “The House Of The Rising Sun.”

“The Helping Hands 2020 streaming party benefitting All Within My Hands has been extended!,” says Metallica. “The show may have ended, and the auction has closed, but if you missed watching it live, now is your chance to catch this unique, worldwide concert event on demand. Ticket packages are available to purchase via nugs.tv until 11:59 PM PST on Giving Tuesday, December 1.

“So many of you have already supported us by watching, donating, and participating in the online auction. Once again, your generosity and kindness have blown us away! Thanks to all of you and our generous sponsors, our first-ever pay-per-view event that streamed live a little over a week ago has raised over $1.3 million! Those funds will be used to work with our partners at Feeding America and the American Association of Community Colleges, along with supporting COVID-19 and disaster relief efforts in the coming months.”

“We still have event posters and t-shirts available in the Metallica Store and we will continue to update you as the Foundation makes additional grants,”
adds the band. “Thank you!!!”
