Greta Van Fleet has been confirmed to open and Jimmy Kimmel will host the evening’s festivities.

Marking it’s return to the in-person format, Metallica’s philanthropic initiative in the All Within My Hands Foundation will host takeover the Microsoft Theater on December 16th with it’s annual concert and charity auction.

In a statement shared by the band coupled with the announcement, Metallica explained, “We’re excited to announce the date of our third Helping Hands Concert & Auction as we invite you to join us in Los Angeles on Dec. 16, 2022, for a very special show benefiting All Within My Hands. It has been a few years since we connected in person for this unique event, so we want to get on your calendar now.”

Metallica added, “We’re excited to share all the amazing things the Foundation has accomplished and we are inspired to look toward the future. Of course, we’ll cap it all off with a full night of live music!”

The 2020 edition of the concert and charity auction was streamed in November of that first year of the pandemic and ultimately helped in raising nearly $2 million dollars in relief funds which went to Feeding America, the American Association of Community Colleges, and a host of COVID and disaster relief efforts that were in crucial need of support.

Since the foundation was established in 2017, Metallica has funded the initiative to ensure all revenue and funds raised to direct to the communities in urgent need. The organization has since generated and donated nearly $6 million to noteworthy local charities combating food insecurity to establishing educational resources.  In tandem with All Within My Hands, Metallica’s Scholars Initiative has pledged some $5.9 million in grants, providing essential funding for some 33 community colleges across the country. 100% of proceeds from this years Helping Hands event including tickets, fees and auction items go directly to help those in need.

While the event has long been sold out, fans that cannot make the show will be able to tune into see Metallica perform as the band recently announced the concert will be broadcast via Paramount+. In addition, the stream will be simulcast to both Pluto and MTV’s YouTube channel. Among the guests confirmed for the special, Great Van Fleet is slated to open the concert and Jimmy Kimmel has been tapped to host the evening’s festivities.
