Metallica Fans Complain To BBC

BBC has revealed that 413 people complained when METALLICA's set was cut short during the Live Earth concert broadcast on Saturday (July 7).
METALLICA played "Sad but True" and "Nothing Else Matters" before Jonathan Ross interrupted them to introduce a recording of "Weather With You" by CROWDED HOUSE from Live Earth in Sydney.
According to EnjoyFrance.com, far less people watched the Live Earth concerts on BBC television than those who tuned in for Concert for Diana.
If all that wasn't bad enough, critics argued the Live Earth gigs themselves added to pollution of the world, and claimed that many of the celebrities involved were bad role models because they flew around the world, often accompanied by their entourages.
Professionally filmed video footage of METALLICA's three-song set as part of the Live Earth concert in London has been posted at YouTube:
"Sad But True": Video
"Nothing Else Matters": Video
"Enter Sandman": Video
The band played three songs instead of the scheduled four; "For Whom the Bell Tolls" was dropped, possibly due to time restrictions.
The Wembley Stadium Live Earth show was part of the 24-hour global series of concerts being held to raise awareness of global warming.
