Metallica has wrapped its “Metallica Mondays” YouTube concert series with the band's full, pro-shot March 3rd, 2017 concert from Mexico City. Metal Hammer reported drummer Lars Ulrich addressed fans prior to the screening and said, “Since much of the world, thankfully, is in much better shape than it has been for quite some time — not everywhere, I know that — we figured that since there’s such a big week happening in Metallica, maybe we should sunset 'Metallica Mondays.' Unfortunately, this is the last one. Of course there’s a part of me that hopes 'Metallica Mondays' can return in some way, shape or form, but obviously, we don’t want it to be because of COVID-19 returning again. So fingers crossed.”
Ulrich went on to say, “Thank you for letting us help you a little bit through these crazy, surreal, challenging times. We’re so grateful, appreciative and honored that these Mondays have gotten Metallica friends and family all over the world together to share an experience and connect with each other in times of darkness and uncertainty.”
All told over the last 23 weeks, the series raised over $100,000 for Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation.
