Metallica Rock Bangalore After Delhi Riot: Photos

WHEN Metallica cancelled their gig in Delhi fans among the 25,000 crowd rioted and smashed the stage up. Anorak finds this encouraging. Isn’t that what rock fans ought to do?

Police have now arrested four executives of DNA Entertainment Network following allegations that refunds were not forthcoming fast enough.

The band stated:

“Once we, along with DNA, the promoters of the show, determined that there was a failure of a security barricade in front of the stage that could not be adequately repaired, the promoter reluctantly announced the postponement of the show until Saturday. Unfortunately, on such short notice the promoters were unable to secure a permit for a show on Saturday.”

Still. What the f**k? Bangalore on Sunday. The fans in Bangalore loved it:
