Four in Five Fans Wanted to Sell Their Glastonbury Tickets After Metallica Announcement, Poll Finds
A recent poll conducted on 2,000 Glastonbury 2014 ticket owners has confirmed that four in five fans have wanted to sell their tickets after the announcement of Metallica as one of the event's headliners.

As Independent reports, re-selling the tickets would be an impossible task, seeing that personalization has been enforced on buyers to prevent touting.

According to the same source, a Viagogo spokesperson has noted that "these findings support widespread media reports that Metallica was a controversial choice to headline one of the world's most iconic music festivals.

"Fans around the country have been left feeling done by, with the festival organizers holding back the headline announcement until after the final resale date. We believe that once you've bought a ticket it's yours and if you want to sell it or give it away, you should be allowed to do so.

"In this case, with an unpopular headline act announced late, ticket holders lose out because they can't resell their tickets and Metallica fans lose out because they can't buy them," the spokesperson concluded.

As for Metallica, the members of the iconic act took most of public jabs in their stride, expressing certainty about rocking the Pyramid Stage. Speaking of which, their performance is set to take place tomorrow night (June 28), check back in soon for more info.
