METALLICA's Two Auckland Concerts Sell Out In 20 Minutes
New Zealand's Stuff.co.nz reports: Tickets to METALLICA's two Auckland shows sold out in just 20 minutes [Thursday] morning [May 13], leaving some angry fans empty-handed.
The tickets went on sale at 9 a.m. and promoters for the two shows, on October 13 and 14 at Vector Arena, said they were sold out by 9:20 a.m.
Stuff.co.nz was swamped with feedback by irate fans who tried to buy them over the internet, but couldn't get through.
"I was on the website from 8.50am and nothing. Both pre-sales failed and sure enough no 25th birthday for me. It was going to be the best start to my honeymoon too," said a poster called Chris.
"Once again, the Ticketmaster website is unstable and not up to modern day needs," said another poster called Mark.
Mark Prado of ContraCostaTimes.com reports: The controversy prompted by a fence erected by Marin rocker James Hetfield is not quite over, but this time it has nothing to do with the METALLICA frontman.
The heavy-metal star put up a fence in 2008 to keep people from hiking and riding past it after some people trashed his land. The fence effectively cut off the popular Luiz Ranch Fire Trail in the Terra Linda-Sleepy Hollow Divide open space preserve.
But the county has planned a new path around the Hetfield land — provisionally named the "680 Trail" — for the elevation of the 2.9-mile path.
