Riots At Metallica Concert In India, It was not “Kill ‘Em All”, but when Metallica and a concert promoter concert postponed first metal band ever in India, the fans reacted angrily a “Seek and Destroy” mentality. Rioted, smashed instruments destroyed even part of the stage, according to The Huffington Post.

The promoter, DNA Entertainment Network, reportedly announced just before the concert was to begin in the Valley Leisure Park in the city of Guragon would have to postpone by one day due to a problem with the security measures in place.

However, some 25,000 fans had already pushed their way into the concert, and his angry reaction given the kind of carnage you would expect from an audience who loves music with strong volume levels of the fine and points on rabies . Fans banners set on fire and paper instruments on stage, according to The Huffington Post. Videos like the one below have already appeared on the Internet that shows the fans swarming the stage and throwing objects at the crowd and security staff.

For the car, but lovers of Napster, can not be attributed to Lars Ulrich. NDTV reports that four people including a senior executive of DNA Entertainment Network, have been arrested following the debacle and accused of cheating ticket buyers and a breach of trust. Authorities allege that the promoters sell more tickets than the capacity and not informing the authorities of the cancellation.

A permit to hold the concert on Saturday could not be obtained in the short term, and the program was canceled later. Promoters said all ticketholders refund. So much for “… And Justice For All.”

In a statement published on the website of the band Metallica wrote:

“Once, along with DNA, the promoters of the show, determined there was a failure of a safety barrier in front of the stage could not be properly repaired, the promoter reluctantly announced the postponement of the show to on Saturday. Unfortunately, in such a short time developers could not obtain a permit for a show on Saturday … We are deeply disappointed with this news we were looking forward to our first experience in India as much as you were. ”

Not exactly the best way to “Fade to Black”. Someone could have just called the “Master of Puppets”? Hopefully Metallica’s new nickname in India will not be “The Unforgiven”. Ok, let’s stop now, we promise. Sorry. We could not resist.
