After ticketing bots left many fans without a chance to catch Metallica’s one-off “S&M” show, the band announced “S&M2.”
Ticketing bots wiped out a majority of the tickets for the rare orchestral show with the San Francisco Symphony when they went on sale, putting them back up on resale websites for thousands of dollars. Upset fans voiced their frustration enough to make the band address the issue.
“We’ve heard you and we’ve learned from our missteps with this particular ticket on sale,” the band said in a statement. “We’re working to make this right as we are excited to announce that a second show has been added at the Chase Center in San Francisco on Sunday, Sept. 8. First order of business: No public on sale this time. Tickets for the second “S&M2″ show will be available exclusively to Fifth Members [the band’s fan club].”
