The Mercury News: Review: Metallica unplugs for charity during epic livestream concert
Metallica was ready to rock once again — although certainly not in the way that fans have been accustomed to hearing over the decades. It would be a little more quiet this time around as the biggest Bay Area band of all time — and the most successful group in heavy metal history — unplugged for its second annual acoustic fundraiser in support of Metallica’s All Within My Hands charity. And, of course, there wasn’t actually any fans physically at this follow-up to the first benefit, which was held at the Masonic in San Francisco back in 2018. Instead, this was a livestreamed gig from the band’s headquarters in San Rafael. Yet, the result was still the same: Metallica triumphed.
