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 should continue with the performance. “It’s not fair to you guys, man,” Hetfield told the crowd . “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 “No!”, 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.”
