$5 Metallica tickets sell for $50

Tickets for Metallica‘s $5 charity show in Canada last night changed hands for up to ten times their original value after scalpers got their hands on them. The Vancouver Sun reports that some people ordered more passes than they needed with the intention of selling them on for $50 or more. Metallica held the cut-price performance in order to film footage for their upcoming movie, with the entire ticket price going to a local food charity. One fan, who bought six with the plan of selling three for $150, told the newspaper: “I do feel a tinge of guilt but I’m willing to do it because I’m not exactly a rich guy.”
