Video footage of METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett kicking a huge black balloon onstage during the band's November 11, 2010 concert in Sydney, Australia and inadvertently knocking a kid to the ground can be viewed below. (Note: The incident in question occurs around the 20-second mark.) It is not believed that the child — who was apparently the daughter of METALLICA's production or tour manager — was injured during the mishap.

METALLICA has just released a second live EP, titled "Six Feet Under, Part II", as a follow-up to the eight-song EP it issued just prior to the band's current tour of Australia and New Zealand. But unlike that disc, which contained recordings of METALLICA gigs in both countries from earlier years, the new EP will feature songs recorded live in September and October at shows on the current trek.

METALLICA's 19-date tour, its first "Down Under" in six years, began on September 15 in Melbourne, Australia and ends on November 21 in the same city.

"Six Feet Under, Part II" is available in Australian and New Zealand stores, as well as at and

The track listing includes live renditions of "Blackened", "Ride The Lightning", "The Four Horsemen", "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)", "Master Of Puppets", "...And Justice For All", "Fade To Black" and "Damage, Inc."

METALLICA will also release a nine-track live EP recorded in Nashville, "Live At Grimey's", on November 26.
