‘Band Together Bay Area’ Benefit Concert To Be Webcast Live


The Band Together Bay Area concert will be held at AT&T Park in San Francisco on November 9. Band Together aims to raise funds for victims of the destructive North Bay firestorm. If you can’t make it to the concert in person, there’s an option to watch from home or wherever you have internet access.

Metallica, Dead & Company, Dave Matthews, Raphael Saadiq, Rancid and G-Eazy are the performers set to play at the event. The concert will be streamed live on Facebook, Twitter as well as the MetallicaTV YouTube channel this Thursday night starting at 5:45 p.m. PT. Metallica will headline with a 75-minute set after G-Eazy, Rancid, Dave Matthews, Dead & Company and Raphael Saadiq. Viewers can contribute to fire relief during the webcast by clicking the “donate” button on the stream or by texting “TOGETHER” to 20222.

The show will be underwritten by sponsors, with 100% of ticket sales going to the Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund. Live music heavyweights Live Nation and Another Planet Entertainment are teaming up to help produce and manage the concerts. In fitting fashion, “The best seats in the house will be donated to first responders, volunteers and families impacted by the firestorm.” Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
