Metallica “Will Play For Food” – And They Did, In Canada


A lot of news has surfaced featuring Metallica since fans patiently awaited for the the new album “Hardwired … To Self Destruct.” Acclaimed for being Metallica‘s “return to their roots,” it’s been the talk if the town and fans can’t get enough.

Trying to supply for the demand to play live, Metallica has appeared on talk shows, prime time TV where they played song favorites on children’s toys (amazing) and as you see here, played a special intimate club show on November 29 at the Opera House in Toronto, Canada.

When announced, fan club members were able to get tickets for the show at just $25, where the general public paid $100. More than just a personal performance, as the arena holds just 950 people, all proceeds from the show were donated to the Daily Bread Food Bank. The show was sold out in mere minutes. The band also asked its fans to bring non-perishable food items, which were dropped off at the door.

Benita Aalto, a spokesperson for Daily Bread, told CBC Toronto that the charity had no advance notice of Metallica‘s plans but was thrilled when the news broke last week. “This was a delightful surprise,” she said.
