The 'big show' in Delhi that should have been Metallica's first ever concert in India has been scrapped! An estimated 25k tickets were sold but following a barrier in front of the stage collapsing leading the band to postpone the show fans subsequently raided and trashed the stage and vandalized equipment – the promoters of the gig have since been arrested on fraud charges after refusing to refund any ticket money.
Metallica issued the following statement explaining they were: "notified that there was a serious question as to whether the show could proceed with regard to the safety of the concert audience, and our first and foremost concern is always for the safety of you, the fans." The promoters were apparently unable to secure a permit for the show to take place the next day …And justice for none then it would seem!
