During Metallica's show on Sunday (May 29), lead guitarist Kirk Hammett botched the instrumental introduction to "Nothing Else Matters.” 

Hammett humorously apologized to the audience before proceeding. "Sorry guys, you're so kick-ass; I got distracted by how kick-ass you are," 

Hammett jokingly fell to the floor after the flub, with Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo miming like he was fanning the guitarist following the mistake.
