Fans attending the band’s September 15 performance at London’s O2 Arena can feel even better about the low 5GBP ticket price – proceeds will go directly to Youth Music, a leading children’s charity in the UK.
Youth Music was founded in 1999 to support music-making activities for children ages 0-18 who would otherwise not have the chance to partake in such opportunities. The organization believes that music-making helps young people develop their potential, shape their identities, and contribute to society.
The concert will coincide with Metallica’s release of its new album, “Death Magnetic,” and follow a similarly charitable concert in Berlin three days prior. The Berlin concert ticket proceeds will go to The Deutsche Herzzentrum Berlin (DHZB) medical centers for heart treatment, and more specifically for “Ein Herz fur Kinder” (a heart for children).
