Metallica's performance at this Thursday's (November 9th) Band Together Bay Area benefit concert will be streamed live on Metallica.com, the band's YouTube channel and the group's Facebook page. The show will also be available on Twitter in the U.S. via @tippingpoint and a special Band Together account as well.
The group will perform a 75-minute set to close out a night that will also feature appearances from Dave Matthews, G-Eazy, Rancid, Dead & Company and Raphael Saadiq. 100 percent of the ticket price will go to relief efforts following the devastating wildfires that wreaked havoc in Northern California last month.
- Fans who wish to make contributions can do so by clicking the “donate” button on the livestream or texting “TOGETHER” to 20222.
- Metallica said in a statement, "We are so proud to be a part of Band Together Bay Area and we hope you can join us this Thursday in assisting our friends and neighbors who have lost so much. All funds from ticket sales will benefit Tipping Point Community, who have set up an Emergency Relief Fund for low-income, vulnerable communities impacted by the crisis, including vineyard workers, immigrants, displaced young people, and students."
- Metallica will also be making a donation to Tipping Point through its All Within My Hands Foundation.
