Metallica leader James Hetfield made a tough confession at the last concert of his South American tour | music | entertainment

For an artist to go up on stage and smile at the audience is not always a sign that all is well, professionalism can simply lead to the application of the popular phrase, “The show must go on.” And that’s what he did James Hetfield, leader of Metallicahe fulfills his obligation to the audience, but he is not emotionally satisfied.

Hetfield’s confession came as the US group performed their last concert of the tour Wired World Tour In Belo Horizonte, in Brazil, last Thursday, May 12th.

“I have to tell you, I was not feeling well before I came here. I felt insecure,” the 58-year-old said at the start of his talk.

He continued, “Because I’m old, I can’t touch this thing. That’s what I was telling myself in my head. So I talked to these guys (shown to his bandmates) and they helped me, that simple. They hugged me and told me that if I felt bad, they would take care of my back.”

The revelation was made to more than 45,000 fans who attended the show and applauded. The moment became even more emotional when Hetfield received a hug from his teammates Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo.

“Now that I’ve seen all of you there,” he said, “I know I’m not alone and neither of you.”

Prior to his arrival in Brazil, Metallica were in Argentina and Chile, where they hosted the World Wired Tour concerts, which were canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. (me)
