Metallica will play a rare acoustic show on November 3rd at the Masonic in San Francisco. The evening, dubbed the “All Within My Hands Foundation Helping Hands Concert And Auction,” will celebrate the first full year of Metallica’s All Within My Hands non-profit foundation, which was launched in 2017 to help creating sustainable communities by tackling the issues of hunger and workforce education and encouraging volunteerism.

In addition to unplugged performances from Metallica and Cage The Elephant, the night will offer attendees an opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind auction items. Tickets in the balcony and a limited number of floor seats will be available via Ticketmaster this Friday (September 21st) at 10:00 a.m. PT.

In its first six months of operation, the Foundation donated more than $750,000 to local food banks around the world — a practice the band and the Foundation have continued on Metallica’s current North American tour. They’ve donated $10,000 to local food banks in every city and met dedicated people who focus their daily lives on helping others.

The current North American leg of Metallica’s “WorldWired” tour will resume on October 16th in Milwaukee.
