Kick 'Em All: Metallica's Kirk Hammett takes down a little kid on stage

File under: Sad But Shoe.

Getting kicked in the face at a Metallica concert is probably nothing new. In fact, I'd probably yearn for a good ol' boot-snog had I been on stage trying to shield my fragile teenage pride from Lars Ulrich with nothing but giant black balloons. But this unfortunate incident, in which guitarist Kirk Hammett becomes the Master of Punters at a Nov. 11 concert in Australia, is just too much to deal with. First off, WTF is a little kid doing on stage at a Metallica concert (hasn't she heard St. Anger?!), and second, what does Dave Mustaine think about all this? Praise be to Cliff Burton the child was ultimately unharmed. with the deets: Despite early reports that the toddler was the son of frontman James Hetfield, it was apparently the daughter of either METALLICA's production or tour manager. (Note: The child was reportedly not injured during the incident.)

Thanks to the Biz for the tip.
