Metallica Explain Beachball Incident


Metallica


Learning about report suggesting a little girl was kicked into the audience at their concert, the band state, 'She wasn't hurt. She didn't go 'flying several feet into the audience'.'

Metallica have issued a statement in a bid to get to the truth of a story suggesting a little girl was kicked into the audience at a recent concert in Australia. The youngster, who is the daughter of the band's stage manager, took a tumble after guitarist Kirk Hammett accidentally kicked a beachball at her and knocked her off balance.

The rockers have confirmed the incident happened but the bandmates insist reports of the girl being kicked into the audience are ridiculous. A statement from Metallica reads, "In the whacky (sic) world of rock'n'roll, sometimes stuff happens which looks even weirder than it really is! And with context being vital in these situations, we just wanted to address something which happened on the tour the other night regarding a large beachball, a band member's foot and a little girl."

"Some of you will have seen on YouTube (or read in some reports) that Kirk knocked a small child offstage by kicking a beachball at her. That little lady... was thoroughly enjoying watching the beachballs drop from the rafters, Kirk was thoroughly enjoying kicking the beachballs off the stage and back into the crowd as has been done every night on the tour, and neither of them saw the other."

"The poor wee one happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. She wasn't hurt. She didn't go 'flying several feet into the audience.' And Kirk and she remain good buddies. It's very cool that everyone showed concern and support though, so we just wanted to say it's all good and thanks for asking."
