It was a loud, hard-rock night at Bell MTS Place as Metallica left their fans happy – then left $10,000 behind for Winnipeg Harvest.

Fans, in the meantime, appeared to have a blast at the Thursday night concert, which was packed.

The money for the donation came from the group’s All Within My Hands Foudnation, which supports workforce education and the fight against hunger. They have donated to groups in several cities they have played in this year.

Bell MTS Place said Friday afternoon the concert set an attendance record for the event, with 17,129 people packed into the arena for the sold-out show.
