Near Riot At Metallica Show In South America
There was chaos when Metallica played in Chile.
Around 120 people were arrested during the band’s show on Tuesday night (January 26) at the Club Hipico Horse Racing Grounds in Santiago, where more than 50,000 crammed in to see the metal legends.
The trouble started when fans without tickets tried to break in and Chilean police attempted to push them back with water cannons.
The fact that the police were using old NWOBHM albums as riot shields was widely seen as an an inflammatory gesture.
Most of the arrests were for possession of drugs, drinking in public and disorderly conduct.
