Earlier, Metallica had shared a picture of them donating €35,000 to the Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin, which looks after homeless people.
“This leg of @metallica‘s #WorldWired Tour starts with a special bonus donation during rehearsal to the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People where they welcome people in need of food aid who have no home or are socially excluded and provide care with respect and dignity”, they wrote on Instagram.
The band had earlier praised the Irish crowds following their Slane Castle performance in front of more than 70,000 people.
Drummer Lars Ulrich said Slane Castle provided “an unbelievable vibe” and that the experience of playing in the bowl was “otherworldly.”
Elsewhere in Metallica news, uDiscover Music recently reported that Kerrang! have announced a collaboration with House Of Vans to bring a one-of-a-kind, one-stop-shop Metallica spectacle to London to coincide with the band’s Kerrang! Awards nomination and their forthcoming Twickenham show.
Titled ‘Hardwired…And Early Dayz’. the extravaganza will include an epic photo exhibition which will not only display never before seen photos from photographer Tom Barnes’s exclusive shoot, but it will also showcase the birth of the band as seen through the pages of Kerrang! in an unparalleled celebration of the period between 1982 and 1989.
The photo exhibition will run from 18 June for a month and gives a never-before-seen insight into not only one of the greatest metal bands of all time, but also the inner workings of one of the world’s greatest rock magazines.
