Fans Disrupt Metallica Formula 1 Plans

Plans for a Metallica live set at a Formula 1 Grand Prix event in India were scrapped after unruly fans swarmed onto the scene of the concert and damaged or destroyed a portion of the stage and some equipment.  After initially announcing the scheduled Friday (10/28) concert would be postponed to allow for repairs, promoters pulled the plug on plans to do the show the following night.  While promoters blame some disruptive fans for causing the cancellation, others claim there is equal blame on both sides.  One music blog site attributed the rapid escalation of rowdy behavior to an '...absence of any real security' at the concert site.  In the aftermath of the fracas questions remain about whether the riot was a cause or consequence of the original postponement.
