The same thing happened last year in Colombia when fans tried to do the same thing for Iron Maiden and a huge riot broke out.

I understand that fans down there don't get to see them as much, so the passion they have can overflow into something like this if they're shut out of the show. But stuff like this never solves anything and not only reflects badly on the people there but makes metal fans look like stupid savages.
