Metallica Will ‘Band Together’ Benefit Concert For Fire Relief
METALLICA announced on their website that they are going to be performing at a benefit concert at AT&T PARK in SAN FRANCISCO on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9th to assist the families impacted by the wildfires in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.
The band released this statement on their website:
“Earlier this month NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, the community that we have called home for over 34 years, suffered devastating wildfires that have destroyed homes and displaced over 100,000 of our neighbors in NAPA, SONOMA, MENDOCINO, LAKE and other counties in the NORTH BAY. We’re extremely saddened by the suffering that so many are feeling in the BAY AREA, but are also inspired by the enormous outpouring of love and support from all around the country and want to jump in and help in the way we know how to – through music!
“With that said, we are proud to be a part of BAND TOGETHER, a benefit concert at AT&T PARK in SAN FRANCISCO on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2017 to assist the families impacted by the fires and show our immense appreciation to the thousands of first responders who have been working tirelessly since the fires began. Joining us will be DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, G-EAZY and more friends to be announced soon.”
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.100% of the ticket price will be donated to this fund at TippingPoint.org.
