Metallica, DMB, G-Eazy Announce ‘Band Together’ Napa Benefit

Metallica, Dave Matthews Band and G-Eazy will share the stage together next month for “Band Together Bay Area,” a benefit concert to raise funds for victims of the Northern California wildfires.

Mark your calendar for Nov. 9 at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.

“Earlier this month Northern California, the community that we have called home for over 34 years, suffered devastating wildfires that have destroyed homes and displaced over 100,000 of our neighbors in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake and other counties in the North Bay,” Metallica said in a joint statement on its website. “We’re extremely saddened by the suffering that so many are feeling in the Bay Area, but are also inspired by the enormous outpouring of love and support from all around the country and want to jump in and help in the way we know how to – through music!”

All ticket sales will go to the Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund. Ticketmaster is also donating its service fees. A post on Metallica’s website notes that Tipping Point has “set up an emergency relief fund for low-income, vulnerable communities impacted by the crisis, including vineyard workers, immigrants, displaced young people and students.”   

The benefit is setting aside the best seats at AT&T Park for first responders, volunteers and others impacted by the fires.
The Band Together Bay Area coalition, made up of business and community leaders including San Francisco Giants President and CEO Larry Baer, Salesforce Chairman/CEO Marc Benioff, Twitter CFO Ned Siegel, Another Planet, Live Nation, Google, Twilio and Kaiser Permanente, has already raised $6.5 million for the relief campaign, according to
