Metal Insider reports that Metallica fans have taken on to Twitter to express their outrage after the presale for the band’s upcoming “S&M2” show with the San Francisco Symphony ended within seconds due to bots grabbing all tickets.
According to the announcement, members of Metallica Legacy and Fifth Member club were given the opportunity to buy tickets a few days early; however, the source adds that “tickets became on sale instantly at StubHub before fans had a chance to view their pre-sale opportunity.”
The report further reads:
“Fans have reported signing in at exactly 9 AM PST and 10 AM PST as their select purchase read ‘unavailable.’ People have tried every single option that they could for the entire half hour, still failing to obtain a single ticket.”
The tickets are now available via resellers over on StubHub starting at around $300 and going as high as $16,000 for a single ticket.
As reported, the one-off September 6 event will see Metallica join forces with the orchestra for the first time in two decades for the opening of San Francisco’s Chase Center.
