METALLICA Drops Two Songs From Copenhagen Concert After JAMES HETFIELD Falls Ill (Video)

METALLICA was forced to play an abbreviated set Friday night (February 3) at Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The band’s frontman, James Hetfield, complained times during the show about being ill and even asked the audience at one point whether they thought METALLICA continue with the performance.

“It’s not fair to you guys, man,” Hetfield told the crowd (see video below). “You paid a lot of good money to come and see your favorite band, and we don’t sound good.

“I’m gonna leave it up to you, man. Would you rather hear us sound better another time?

“I wanna stop. What do you say?”

After the 15,500-strong audience responded with a resounding “Yes!”, Hetfield added: “Okay. You asked for it. All right. I’ll keep doing my best, all right? I appreciate you guys so much, man. Thank you for your support.”

METALLICA was reportedly planning on including the songs “Halo On Fire” and “Sad But True” in setlist for the Copenhagen concert, but decided to drop them at the last minute as a result of Hetfield‘s illness. The band still managed to play sixteen tracks at the show — including no less than five cuts from their latest album, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”: “Hardwired”, “Atlas, Rise!” , “Now That We’re Dead”, “Moth Into Flame” and “Confusion” — before calling it a night.

METALLICA has three more shows scheduled for the Royal Arena — on February 5, February 7 and February 9 — before performing at the 59th annual Grammy Awards on February 12, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The ceremony will be televised at 8:00 p.m. on CBS.

The band is nominated this year in the “Best Rock Song” category for the track “Hardwired”.

The group has plans to hit the rest of Europe, South America and North America in the months ahead, including its first proper U.S. trek in eight years.
