Metallica's live shows are famous for having technically ambitious stage setups, complete with pyrotechnics, lasers, projectors and more. Their WorldWired tour has proven no exception with its eye-catching stage design (the band perform under a canopy of 52 LED video cubes, which move up and down with the music) and groundbreaking use of drones (it's the first major tour in music history to feature an autonomous indoor drone swarm).

Loud and Quiet: Lars Ulrich recounts how Metallica regrouped in 1987 after the death of their friend and bassist

On September 27th, 1987, Metallica were travelling on their tour bus after a gig in Sweden. Shortly before 7am, with the whole crew asleep, they were awoken as the bus veered left to right, throwing the band members around like ricocheting pinballs. The bus then flipped over, landing on its side, as bodies crashed and thudded against smashed glass and broken furniture. There was confusion and chaos and screaming all around as band members crawled out from the bus in the still, dark morning, yelling one another’s names to locate people. Gradually people were found and marked safe and well, with the exception of their bass player, Cliff Burton.
