Metallica's Stand in Toronto Sells Out in Minutes!

Metallica Tickets for the July 10th show in Toronto sold out in just minutes. The Rogers Arena ticket prices ranged from $95 - $3,299 (in primary box office prices.)

This probably does not come as a shock to anyone, more of a warning to camp at the box office, the night before your cities on-sale date.

The tour venues are all arena's. I'm talking like football stadiums and ball parks. If you end up with a seat at the far end of a football field you will be essentially watching ants on stage and jumbo-trons.

However, in the States on-sale tickets for venues in Philly, Baltimore and NYC are still available.

Amber Healy, a specialist in music policy and lawsuits, writes at
A Journal of Musical Things:

" In the States, by the time Toronto’s show had sold out, there were still plenty of seats available in all price ranges in Philadelphia, Baltimore and NYC/NJ. Could this be an indication that the federal anti-ticket bot legislation, passed by both houses of Congress and signed into law by President Obama in December, is actually effective? It’s likely hard to say: The stadiums where Metallica is playing are larger, mostly open-top stadiums for football or baseball teams, meaning they automatically have more seats than enclosed arenas.

So is there something special about Toronto? Did any fans get seats directly? Is it worth paying nearly twice the face value for tickets on the secondary market? We want to hear your feedback."
