OUCH!! What the hell is a gaping hole doing in the middle of Metallica’s stage?? Fortunately Hetfield wasn’t hurt badly, but he sure could have been!! At the end of “Now That We’re Dead” James said he was OK, except for a bruised ego and some hurt feelings.
According to Rolling Stone magazine: “Hetfield tripped on one of four openings that allowed tables of percussion to be lifted onto the stage from below. Fans captured footage of the fall on their phones; one angle from slightly above the stage shows that the trap doors opened only moments before the singer’s tumble.”
