No Metallica Show: Fan(atic) vandalism costs Rs 1 cr
Fanatics ( crazy fans) unleashed mob fury and damaged stage equipment worth $200,000 (almost Rs 1 crore) when the organizers of the Metallica concert, scheduled to be held on Friday evening, cited ‘technical difficulties’ to postpone the show at the eleventh hour amid unconfirmed reports that it was being cancelled.
Soon after the announcement by DNA Networks, fans vandalized equipment and demanded a refund. Before the police arrived on the scene,, the mob had wrecked a stage that took two months to set up.
More than 20,000 people gathered at the venue for the concert being held in connection with the first Indian F1 Grand Prix.
