Metallica’s first Columbian concert since 1999 exploded into a riot last night when fans without tickets tried to get in. This resulted in three stabbings, a police injury and 50 arrests. About 1,500 police patrolled the event and there were four tanks present, but this didn’t stop fans from storming the Bogota venue, Simon Bolivar Park.
Another violent riot occurred outside the same venue in 2009 when ticketless fans tried to coerce their ways into an Iron Maiden concert.
