Metallica’s James Hetfield took a tumble during the band’s set at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome last night.

They were halfway through Now That We’re Dead when the vocalist and guitarist took a wrong step as he walked back towards the drum kit.

Bandmates Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo and Lars Ulrich keep playing but look on with concern as two members of the road crew help Hetfield to his feet.

He managed to finish the set without any apparent serious injury. Watch the video below.

Metallica are currently on tour across Europe in support of their latest album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct. They’ll play again in Amsterdam tomorrow night (September 6) before continuing the tour with three dates in France.
