Metallica Guitarist Falls Onstage In Sad Video


Metallica, the undisputed titans of metal, have embarked on their highly anticipated “M72” tour earlier this year, igniting the European stage with an electrifying series of performances. However, this tour is not just your typical run-of-the-mill rock spectacle. The legendary band has unleashed an innovative concept known as the “No Repeats Weekend,” delivering an unprecedented experience for their devoted fans.

As reported by UG – The “No Repeats Weekend” concept has Metallica gracing the same venue in each city for two consecutive nights over a thrilling weekend. But here’s the kicker – the setlists for each performance are entirely distinct, offering fans a rare opportunity to relish in the uncharted territories of Metallica’s discography. Furthermore, the band has curated an impressive lineup of opening acts to accompany them on this exhilarating musical journey.

By adopting this audacious approach, Metallica has not only granted their fanbase the chance to revel in lesser-known gems that seldom make it onto their hit-packed setlists but has also revitalized their own artistic spirit. Onstage, Metallica exudes an energy and enthusiasm that harks back to their glory days, injecting a newfound vitality into their performances.

Naturally, a tour of this magnitude is not without its fair share of incidents. Amidst the raging storm of metal mayhem, there have been a few hiccups along the way, including an out-of-tune guitar and some playful “St. Anger” snare antics. Nevertheless, the overwhelming consensus among Metallica’s loyal following is that the tour has been an undeniable triumph, reaffirming the band’s unrivaled status.

During Metallica’s monumental debut night at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden, a moment of concern arose when guitarist Kirk Hammett encountered a knee cramp mid-performance, precisely during the blistering rendition of “Master of Puppets.” Fan-captured footage immortalizes the sight of the legendary axeman bravely soldiering on, standing on one leg to alleviate the pain and clutching his knee in agony. Yet, with unwavering determination, Hammett powered through, captivating the audience with his unparalleled skill. Astonishingly, Hammett swiftly recovered, finishing the song with renewed vigor, leaving the crowd in awe of his resilience.
