Metallica have expanded their upcoming tour to include a rare acoustic show in San Francisco for a good cause. Proceeds go to Metallica's own All Within My Hands charity, which is "intended to have an even greater impact through a sustained and focused philanthropic commitment and hopes to inspire others to join us in making the world a better place through local community support." Here's the announcement:

A little over 18 months ago we announced the formation of All Within My Hands, our foundation focused on creating sustainable communities by tackling the issues of hunger and workforce education and encouraging volunteerism. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be celebrating our first full year with the All Within My Hands Foundation Helping Hands Concert and Auction on November 3rd at the Masonic in San Francisco. We hope you will join us to see what we’ve been up to, learn about the organizations we’ve supported, bid on some cool auction items and we’ll close out the night by hitting the stage for a rare acoustic performance. Also joining us for that evening will be our friends Cage The Elephant.

As the WorldWired tour rolls on we have had the honor and pleasure of meeting dedicated people all over the world who focus their daily lives on helping others... it’s been extremely humbling and very inspiring. We’re excited to share our passion with you, introduce you to some of the people we’ve worked with, and of course raise funds to assist with their incredible ongoing efforts in communities across the country and around the world.

Tickets for the show go on sale Friday (9/21) at 10 AM Pacific.

Metallica's tour also includes (non acoustic) stops in New York, Pennsylvania, Vegas, Portland, Nashville, Cleveland, and more. All dates are listed below.
