Metallica frontman James Hetfield falls onstage

Metallica frontman James Hetfield narrowly escaped serious injury after falling on-stage in the Netherlands last night (September 4). Video of the mishap can be viewed below.

Hetfield fell into a gap in the stage at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam that had automatically opened up just seconds before. Hetfield subsequently remained crouching for several seconds before he was helped to his feet by a pair of crew members. The band did not stop playing, and during a subsequent break between songs, Hetfield told the crowd, "Yes, I'm ok. My ego? Not not so much."
