Earthquake Volunteers Rewarded With METALLICA Tickets

September 15, 2010

According to The New Zealand Herald, student volunteers who helped in the clean-up efforts after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck 40 kiometers west of Christchurch, the capital of New Zealand, have been rewarded with tickets to a METALLICA gig.

METALLICA has two sold-out concerts at CBS Canterbury arena next week but in wake of the devastating earthquake on September 4 the band and promoter Michael Coppel wanted to help.

They had donated about 300 suite tickets for the student volunteers and emergency services to attend the concert.

Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker said it was a generous offer and sent a great message to the hundreds of people who had worked thousands of hours getting the city back up and running.
