160 Arrested At Metallica Concert!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBusted!

Whenever Metallica performs, you know it's not gonna be good!

1,500 officials in Bogata, Columbia failed to prevent riots at a Metallica show on Wednesday.

About 160 people were arrested and at least 8 were injured as hundreds of fans attempted to force their way into the sold out show.

WTF?!

It's reported that police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd.

"Those people that did not get in wanted to get in by force. The presence of police and riot teams was necessary because these misfits - there's no other name for them - damaged some windows in the surrounding area," said officer Ruben Castillo.

The show still managed to go on, but we doubt they'll be back in Columbia anytime soon!

    Colombia!

    Once again… COLOMBIA.
    Damn. Proof-read before you post.



  6. 6

    At least get the spelling of the city and country right!!!! BOGOTA, COLOMBIA



  7. 7

    You should get more information before you post something here. First of all is not Columbia, it is COLOMBIA. Second, it is not Bogata, it is BOGOTA. Third, even though that happened, the concert was a huge success and most people were really glad with Metallica's performance. There were disturbs a long time ago when Metallica performed for the first time, those were worse than the ones that happened on Wednesday, but what happened?? Metallica went back!! So before making stupid conclusions, learn how to read, how to get information and HOW TO SPELL COLOMBIA idiot!

  14. 14

    REALLY!!! Perez I know you didn't write this! Who ever is updating your website fire them asap. BOGOTA, COLOMBIA!!!! check the spelling!



  15. 15

    Metallica are the best band that ever happened to music. People automatically assume that trouble follows heavy metal fans but that is bullshit. I never feel safer than when I'm at a gig.. I know all the fans have got my back. When shit like this goes down it is the fault of the organisers. 100%.



  16. 16

    POR FAVORRR!!! BOGOTA, COLOMBIA!!!!! SPELLING PLEASEE!!! ITS AN INSULT!!!!



  17. 17

    "Whenever Metallica performs you know it's not going to be good"????

    FUCK YOU PEREZ. You wouldn't know good music if it fucked you in the ass. Take your Sliimy and crawl back into your crypt you fucking toad.



  18. 18

    Bogata columbia??? Really??? C'mon I expect that from any American who's just a tad ignorant. Aren't you supossed to be Cuban?? Totally aggravating!! Ugh.



  19. 19

    Re: MeChi – Perez is not hispanic in my opinion. He is not a good representation of a human being.



  20. 20

    Dude. Stuff is always going on at Metallica concerts. A girl disappeared after a Metallica concert a couple of months ago.



  21. 21

    ITS COLOMBIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO COLUMBIA!!!!



  22. 22

    OMG, lol….BOGOTA- COLOMBIA..aren't you latin Mario? Dumbass…Bogota is infamous for having riots/fights at EVERY rock concert..I visit the city regularly and it's totally common…my friends who live there had his faced slashed by a bottle once….just kids hyped up….lol…



  23. 23

    In even bigger news: people are still going to Metallica concerts!



  24. 24

    What an ignorant. Seriously you're supposed to be doing some kind of journalism and you do the TYPICAL ignorant american mistake? COLOMBIA AND BOGOTA dude….I mean what the hell… it's ok you;re fat and stupid but this is just embarasing to yourself

  26. 26

    It's Bogota, Colombia!!!!



  27. 27

    Fuck that, I've been to Metallica concerts and the atmosphere among the fans is incredible, and they never fail to put on a mind blowing show. I've never encountered any problems. They are the greatest band in the world, so don't diss them please.



  28. 28

    METALLICA ROCKS !!! their concerts are awsome !



  29. 29

    Oh wow, what stupidity!! From the ridiculous spelling mistakes to the ignorant judgement. I was at the show and I am an american female. I didn't see any of this and felt completely safe. I don't doubt that it happened, but it definitely wasn't headline news, even here in BogOta (yes, with an "o"). I hate careless reporting, but expect nothing more from this shitty blog. I'm disappointed too because I really used to like it.



  30. 30

    and that's metallica's fault? i've seen them often perform and nothing happened besides great concerts! not their fault that people get pissed because they've not legal tickets so can't get in. that's the fault of the organisers. i saw a video of the riots and it looked damned scary to me!



  31. 31

    "Whenever Metallica performs, you know it's not gonna be good!"
    WTF would you know about Metallica and their shows? How many have you been to? What are you saying about Metallica fans? You're an idiot Perez. Metallica are legends.



  32. 32

    Glad to see other people caught the misspelling of Colombia - helps restore a little faith that some people actually know they're geography.

    I think I'm quitting this bitch for sure now. So fucking lame when the blogger becomes a celebutard.



  33. 33

    Same thing happened when they played in Guatemala! Oversold tickets, counterfits, people tried to force their way inside, but police quickly disbursed them before it got worst!

  34. @v@ says – reply to this


    34

    There are videos of the riots over at roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news. The concert was held at Bolivar Park, so this tells me that Bogota needs to use a much larger public venue for big acts like this. Never had to happen.



  35. 35

    what fools Metallica they look like in this photo, ooo, so scary!!! douchebags

  36. @v@ says – reply to this


    36

    Riot police went after everyone trying to flee with water cannons, tear gas etc., so all attendees were treated to this; not just the crashers.



  37. 37

    Perez you're so dumb. You act all tough and intelligent but yet you can not spell. It's Bogotá, Colombia you ignorant. Get your facts straight Metallica has gone to Colombia three times so they'll be back, because they love "Columbia" you idiot!!!!!

  38. lims says – reply to this


    38

    SO NOT TRUE!!!! WTF PEREZ!!! GET UR SHIT RIGHT!!! first of all as every one has already pointed out its B-O-G-O-T-À second of all COLOMBIA!!!! and third 160!!!???? who the hell are your sources!!! get it right! the show was a TOTAL SUCCESS nothing happened inside!! just a few kids trying to get in but not 160!

    SHAME ON YOU PEREZITO!!! SHAME ON YOU!!

  39. @v@ says – reply to this


    39

    Some regular ticket holders trying to flee got treated to the riot measures along with the crashers.



  40. 40

    Perez at least write a correction for COLOMBIA , i mean you are who you are because of the people … show some respect ….. ….



  41. 41

    In bigger news…You or your staff can't spell BOGOTA, COLOMBIA! How embarrasing! You should make a correction asap!



  42. 42

    Get an Atlas idiot! I know it's hard for you, but try to read this: COLOMBIA! again: COLOMBIA! BOGOTA. Again: BOGOTA.



  43. 43

    there goes your Miami cred, Lavadora.



  44. 44

    you don't know write…
    it's Bogotá, Colombia, not Bogata, Culumbia
    your so stupid
    it's Bogotá, Colombia.
    Many people of low class or low education are Mettalica fans so do not know how to behave at a concert, in addition, all parties that this band shows so disturbances.
    Metallica fans anywhere in the world are aggressive, you know.



  45. 45

    I'm living in colombia so belive in me… nothing happened
    and it's Bogotá, Colombia, not Bogata, Columbia

    it's Bogotá D. C., Colombia

    Re: miamiGIRLhere – Just wondering… EVERY concert? Are you sure? I've been to my share of concerts and.. No riots. Some riots happen, yeah. But not at every concert. And I'm pretty sure that's normal EVERYWHERE, not just in Bogota.

    Re: Nichole@HangerAlley
    Stuff isnt always going on at Metallica concerts- for the all those shows that they have played in 28 years theyve been around you can still count on your hand the times there have been incidents. Whenever you get a large crowd, theres potential for something happening. For the most part, its not the real fans of the bands that cause problems. Even boy band and teenyboopers have issues at shows.

    And Perez, you fatass- show some respect for your fellow Spanish speakers out there. (not sure how to group- ColOmbia isnt Latino- right? wrong?) and at least get the PROPER names right!

    As for this-
    "Whenever Metallica performs, you know it's not gonna be good!" Just wait until what happens when more than 10 people show up to see Slime E.



  49. 49

    i agree is BOGOTA no bogata and COLOMBIA no columbia



  50. 50

    please learn how to spell!!!



  51. 51

    seriously???? bogOta, colOmbia!!! I thought you spoke Spanish and grw up in Miami. how can you not know how to spell Bogotá, Colombia?



  52. 52

    Metallica fans are neanderthals.



  53. 53

    i really like this website and this is the first time ive ever scoffed at anything on here. get your facts straight before posting stuff like this. First off, its Bogota, Colombia. Second of all, don't make Colombians sound like neandrathals. I'm sure you wouldn't like a public figure insulting Cubans.



  54. 54

    I hadn't bothered to create an avatar before but seeing the horrible ignorance of this post pushed me to do so. Colombia, not Columbia… it's South America, not Canada ok? People got arrested at the Coldplay concert too, a week before this one in the same city… so…. bias much?

    What an idiotic take on a random fact, seriously



  55. 55

    jajaja I just read the link about the arrest and I noticed the horrible spelling comes from the website you carelessly copied the info from… so apart from taking a ridiculous stand, you post information without confirming it. Fantastic journalism standards.



  56. 56

    Whenever Perez make a comment about music he knows nothing about, you know it's not gonna be good.

    Perez doesn't understand Metallica because his vagina has sand in it.



  57. 57

    As a Cuban-Colombian from Miami, I have to say that it really is an insult that you not only misspell the city's name but you misspell the country. Did you not get a college education? Aren't you Hispanic? Show some respect.



  58. 58

    Are you kidding me Perez? You can't effing spell?



  59. 59

    How can you honestly think this is Metallica's fault? I've been to see them several times. Never, never have there been violent outbreaks. I mean, the first time I saw them was on the Master of Puppets tour at Monsters of Rock and it was nuts but not violent! Come on…what did Forrest say? Stupid is as stupid does! Sheesh.



  60. 60

    WOW!!! I am so offended that you cannot spell BOGOTA, COLOMBIA correctly. It's offensive enough when the non-hispanic world spells it COLUMBIA, but a fellow Hispanic? What a disgrace! One other thing, if you wanna keep calling Lady Gaga by a sweet name, spell it correctly. It's Gaguita, NOT gagita. (for example: amiga/amiguita, NOT amiga/amigita.)



  61. 61

    Ist COLOMBIA !!!!!!!!!! WTF? Don't you have spellcheck
