#MetallicaGivesBack Throughout Europe
A huge thank you to all of you who made the kick-off of the M72 tour so memorable!! We’re on a brief break after some incredible nights in Europe, but we want to thank you for joining us in supporting our charitable partners.
If you’ve been following along with All Within My Hands, you know we donate a portion of all ticket sales back into the communities visited in each city. In partnership with local promoters, the Foundation has been working diligently to find organizations that align with the AWMH mission and actively put funds to use to better the lives of people in need. Curious where the money has gone while the M72 World Tour made its way through Europe?
Get to know our recipients below. A massive thank you to Live Nation, MOJO.nl, Festival Republic, and of course, the entire Metallica Family for making these grants possible! And a special shout out to Metallica Club Scandinavia. Thirty-eight of their members spent time volunteering for Göteborgs Stadsmission on the day between shows, packing bags of food.
