The February delivery of Moth Into Flame, from the band’s latest album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, did not go as planned – and left frontman James Hetfield furious.
A technical error meant that his microphone wasn’t turned on at the start of the show, meaning he had to share with Gaga. That took place after presented Laverne Cox failed to mention Metallica while introducing Gaga.
At the end of the song, Hetfield kicked over his mic stand and threw his guitar at a roadie. He later admitted: “I felt embarrassed. I haven’t been that angry in a long time.”
