Big Concerts have announced that the Cape Town venue for Metallica has changed. Metallica will now perform two nights at the Bellville Velodrome on April 24 and 25 to allow fans a chance of watching Metallica in a dynamic indoor live music setting.
The Johannesburg performance date and venue will not be affected. As a consequence of this new development, fans that have already purchased tickets to the Cape Town stadium concert will have to exchange their tickets as follows:
• All Golden Circle Standing- and Seated ticket holders that purchased their tickets from Computicket for the Cape Town stadium performance must present and exchange their tickets at any Computicket outlet for a new ticket to either one of the performances at the Bellville Velodrome on April 24 or 25.
• General Admission Standing ticket holders for the Cape Town stadium that purchased their tickets from Computicket are valid for the April 24 performance at the Bellville Velodrome, and no exchange is required.
• All ticket holders that purchased their tickets from Big Concerts through bigconcerts.co.za will receive an email with specific instructions on how to exchange their tickets.
Lars Ulrich, James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo, collectively known as Metallica, are one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history, having sold 110 million albums worldwide and playing to millions of fans the world over.
