Metallica went on stage with Lady Gaga at the 59th Grammy Awards ceremony and they performed “Moth Into Flame”. But James Hetfield’s mic did not work and the concert was awful.
James Hetfield was very angry at the end of the song and threw his guitar onto the technical team. According to the report published today by TMZ and revealed that who is responsible for this problem. Here’s the report:
“Sources connected to the production tell us everything was fine right before the “Moth Into Flame” collab was about to begin. Gaga and the band’s line check, right before the performance, went off without a hitch.
However, between the mic check and their act … a wire under the stage got unplugged. We’re told a stagehand did it by accident, but the damage was done — Hetfield’s mic was dead through most of the performance.
They eventually fixed the unplugged wire with seconds left in the song. We reached out the Grammys, but no word back yet.
James handled it all like a pro, ’cause that’s rock ‘n’ roll.”
