Metallica had to disappoint their Swedish fanbase (a group you'd assume has learned to live with disappointment) after James Hetfield was rushed to hospital with a belly ache.
The 16,000 fans who had trooped out to the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm were sent away:
"As you can clearly see, one of the members of Metallica isn't with us up here on stage tonight," Lars Ulrich told [the crowd]. "Unfortunately, I have to let you know that James has had a really, really bad day and he's on his way to the hospital right now."
As they headed back out to the car park, the crowd were able to console themselves that, at least, they hadn't had to sit through a Metallica concert.
