Fans End Metallica Israel Concert Boycott
Israeli fans of Metallica have won their bid for cheaper tickets after staging a boycott of the group's 22 May gig in Tel Aviv, Israel. The man behind the Ramat Gan stadium show - the band's first concert in Israel since 1999 - upset fans when he announced all tickets for the gig would sell for upwards of $159 (106). And more than 500 Metallica-mad music fans committed to boycott the concert as part of a Facebook.com campaign. But Tomer Mussman and Rotem Horovitz, who sparked the protest, have now agreed to drop the boycott after coming to an agreement with promoter Marcel Avram. They write, "After a four-day campaign, tens of news items about us worldwide, over 6,000 supporters and numerous media interviews, we can say that we did it! We won! "This afternoon, Tomer Mussman met with Mr. Gad Oron, the promoter's representative, and reached an agreement about a significant drop in ticket prices. "We would like to personally thank Metallica and their management for directly helping us with reaching our goal and reducing the prices. We are officially asking each and every one of you to stop the boycott, and come and enjoy Metallica's concert with us on May 22... We want to thank the producers, Metallica members and management who were willing to talk to us." Thanks for the report to Contactmusic.com.
