Violence and chaos broke out around Simon Bolivar Park in Bogota, Colombia as hundreds of fans tried to crash METALLICA's first concert in the South American country in 11 years. According to Colombia Reports, three people were stabbed, a policeman injured, and more than 50 people were arrested, while property was vandalized and destroyed.

A local radio report claimed that there were posts on Facebook before the show urging fans to crash the gig.

Heavy security blanketed the show itself, including 1,500 police officers, four tanks and several police trucks. Estimates of the paid crowd at the show varied between 20,000 and 70,000.

120 people were arrested when rioting broke out outside a METALLICA concert in Santiago, Chile in January. Most of the arrests were made when hundreds of fans who did not have tickets attempted to force their way into the concert.
