Metallica’s Helping Hands charity show, which benefits the band’s All Within My Hands charity foundation, have been moved to from March to September

Metallica has moved their upcoming Helping Hands charity show to the fall. Originally set for March 28 at the Masonic in San Francisco, the event is now schedule for Sept. 12 at the same venue.

The charity show, called Helping Hands, will raise funds for Metallica’s All Within My Hands charity foundation. The Helping Hands event has been happening annually since 2018.

“A few of you may recall that in September as we were riding high on all the positive vibes that came out of the two S&M² shows, we were excited to announce that we had set aside March 28th to celebrate AWMH with all of you again,” the members of Metallica said in a statement.

The band added, “However, we may have been a little too ambitious with that date in terms of getting our s*** together and giving you an experience that matches or surpasses the first event, held in November of 2018.”

The original Helping Hands event set for March 28 was set to be the first show back for frontman James Hetfield, who re-entered rehab to get treatment for substance abuse problems last fall. Now, Metallica’s first full gig back following Hetfield’s rehab will be Metallica’s April 15 concert in Chile. Hetfield did make a recent appearance Thursday (Feb. 20) at “A Star-Studded Tribute To Eddie Money” in Beverly Hills, California, and performed the Eddie Money hit “Baby Hold On.”
