Metallica’s generous $10k El Paso gesture goes viral


Before the Don Haskins Center Faded to Black Thursday night, Metallica had already given one of the most generous donations in Sun City rock history to the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank.

A portion of every ticket sold for Metallica’s tour stop in El Paso went toward the El Paso food bank, which has been stretched thin by the migrant surge and government shutdown recently. The check for $10,000 is part of the band’s All Within My Hands Foundation effort to create sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical services. 

The Metallica concert ended with thousands of El Paso fans happy to share in the final leg of the WorldWired Tour, but after the donation it appears that Nothing Else Matters except taking care of our fellow community members.
