On December 16, 2022Metallica celebrated their third Helping Hands benefit concert to support All in my hands foundation. The show took place at the Microsoft Theater downtown Los Angeles and featured many celebrity appearances as well as two unique sets; the first set consisted of five songs performed acoustically and the second contained nine songs, fully electric.
Both setlists had plenty of highlights, but there’s no doubt that fans were most excited to see them first ever live performance of “Lux Eterna,” as well as a few killer covers of UFO and Thin Lizzy melodies.
The band has already released audio from the show for fans to stream and download– beyond some individual videos— but now you can also see professionally shot footage of the entire concert.
“Whether you missed the live event or want to relive the show, we’ve got you covered,” the band wrote in a Jan. 1 email to fans. 5, 2023. “The concert in its entirety is available on demand on Paramount+ worldwide. You can also capture Helping hands 2022 [on television via] MTV…the concert is also available for stream on Pluto TV.”
