Metallica were forced to cancel their planned performance in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Sunday night due to a throat issue affecting vocalist and guitarist James Hetfield. After struggling onstage on Friday night, Hetfield said to the crowd: “It’s not fair to you guys. You paid a lot of good money to come and see your favourite band and we don’t sound good. “I’m gonna leave it up to you. Would you rather hear us sound better another time? I wanna stop. What do you say?” When the crowd cheered for the band to keep going, Hetfield added: “All right. I’ll keep doing my best.” (viateamrock)
