Heavy metal rockers Metallica horrified Scottish concert organisers this week (ends4JUN04) - by throwing a tantrum over the stage layout just hours before their performance.

The legendary trio, Lars Ulrich, James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett, sent specific plans of how to lay out a 150 metre (492 foot) barrier in front of the Glasgow Green stage, Scotland - but demanded that the set-up was changed when they arrived.

An insider says, "Metallica have caused us a lot of hassles. The metal barrier is very heavy and we had to employ a lot of people to change the way it was set up."
