Metallica Donated €1.5 Million To Charity On Their Recent European Tour
Over the past few months, Kerrang! have been reporting on Metallica’s many charitable donations of late – from €250,000 to a Pediatric Oncology and Radiotherapy Hospital in Romania, to £40,000 to a homeless charity in Manchester.
Now, it’s been revealed that the metal kings – along with their All Within My Hands Foundation – gave away a whopping €1.5 million to local charities across the 25 dates of their European WorldWired… tour this year, which is an absolutely incredible amount of money.
On Twitter, the band wrote: “A HUGE thanks to all who attended a #WorldWired European show for helping us donate over €1.5million to local charities over the course of the 25-show tour. And special thanks to #MetInMannheim fans for wrapping it up with this contribution to Freezone. #MetallicaGivesBack #AWMH”
