Metallica’s James Hetfield Receives Group Hug From His Bandmates After Getting Emotional Onstage

During Metallica’s May 12 show in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, James Hetfield got emotional while opening up about his insecurities onstage. He told the crowd the following:

“I’ve gotta tell you I wasn’t feeling very good before I came out here. [I was] feeling a little bit insecure, like I’m an old guy, [I] can’t play anymore — all this bullshit that I tell myself in my head. So I talked to these guys, and they helped me — as simple as that. They gave me a hug and said, ‘Hey, if you’re struggling on stage, we’ve got your back.’ And I tell you, it means the world to me.”

After making the revelation, the frontman’s bandmates gave him a group hug, before he added:

“And seeing you out there, I… I am not alone. I am not alone, and neither are you.”
