Rock icons Metallica are set to return to the UK with a special, intimate London show at the exclusive House of Vans venue on Friday 18th November.

The one-off live performance by one of the world’s most successful bands will mark the launch of Metallica’s eleventh studio album ‘Hardwired…To Self-Destruct’, with all proceeds from the gig going to Railway Children.

To be in with a chance of attending this extremely rare and intimate show at the 850-capacity London House of Vans, fans need to go to the House of Vans website where they can enter a ballot. It closes on Sunday 13th November at 6pm and winners will be notified the following day. 

Tickets are free, however all attendees will be asked for a cash donation of £20 upon entry - 100% of which will go to Railway Children, which is a charity partner of House of Vans.

Andy McCullough, UK Head of Policy and Public Affairs at Railway Children and Metallica fan, said: “We are proud to be affiliated with the House of Vans, which has become an amazing creative space for artists and musicians, attracting some of the biggest names in the business. All funds raised from this special, one-off concert will help us change the lives of vulnerable children alone and at risk on the streets in East Africa, India and the UK.”
