A "ticketing error" has recently allowed Black Sabbath fans to purchase tickets for the band's headlining Hyde Park show for merely £2.50 ($4.25) each.

As Blabbermouth reports, the whole situation occurred as a secret link intended for employees of the event's organizers leaked, ultimately turning into a concert bargain of the century.

The full ticket price is £69 ($117), making the "ticketing error" price nearly 30 times cheaper. However, the organizers have apparently caught up with the leak, as discounted tickets are now labeled as "sold out" or "unavailable."

According to the same source, AXS ticketing company has stated that the discount was an offer open only to "companies that are connected with the promoter," but still noted that AEG Live plans to honor all $4.25 tickets.

Apart from Sabbath, the July 4 Hyde Park show will feature Soundgarden, Faith No More, Motorhead, Wolfmother, Soulfly and more.

    No doubt. It kicks the sh*t out of Sonisphere and Download for half the price of either. I've got a ticket, f*cking stoked for Friday!

    AXS ticketing company has stated that the discount was an offer open only to "companies that are connected with the promoter," Ssssure it was. Im sure it has nothing to do with the fact tickets havent been selling well due to it being held on the same friday as sonisphere and both festivals resorting to practically giving tickets away just to fill out the crowd

    Were Soundgarden, Motorhead, and Faith No More fans not allowed to buy tickets at this price?

    Well, it wasn't just Black Sabbath, it was across the whole BST festival line ups, with other bands too.
