After Friday’s chaos and subsequent postponement of Metallica concert in Delhi, DNA networks has announced that Metallica won’t perform in Delhi.
Metallica arrived in Delhi on Friday very excited and ready to play their first show ever in India at the F1 Rocks concert. However, immediately at the end of their afternoon press conference at a hotel near the venue, the band was notified that there was a serious question as to whether the show could proceed with regard to the safety of the concert audience.
Metallica’s first and foremost concern is always for the safety of their concert fans. Once the promoters of the show, DNA Networks, and Metallica determined that there was a failure of a security barricade in front of the stage that could not be adequately repaired, they 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, therefore DNA announced that Metallica would not be able to play in Delhi. Within the next 24 hours a notification will be issued by DNA Networks regarding the process for full refunds. Metallica is deeply disappointed with this news and will continue to send updates as additional details are determined and confirmed.
