Metallica's Guitarist Accidentally Kicked Little Girl in Concert


Kirk Hammett, Metallica


The daughter of a crew member was standing on the edge of stage when Kirk Hammett kicked one of the black inflatable balls at her direction by accident.

Metallica's recent show in Sydney, Australia has been mired in controversy after guitarist Kirk Hammett accidentally knocked a child off the stage during a stunt. The rockers were performing in the city last Thursday, November 11 and Hammett kicked oversized inflatable black balls into the audience during their set.

But, unknown to the guitarist, a young girl was stood at the edge of the stage - and she was knocked backwards when the inflatable struck her. The youngster, who escaped the fall unharmed, is the daughter of a crew member, according to Blabbermouth.net.

On related news, along with Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snow Patrol, Metallica would be headlining Rock in Rio festival in September and October next year. "We know it's pretty nutty to announce a show almost a year in advance," the band said. "[It's] certainly not something we've ever done before! However, when we were asked to headline the original Rock in Rio, the one actually in Rio de Janeiro, we just couldn't say 'no'."
