One of the hardest to obtain seats for on Metallica‘s M72 world tour are the “Snake Pit” sections, but they are also the most expensive. At one of their recent concerts, several uninvited fans were given credentials for the pit; their responses were hilarious.
Green Snake Pit wristbands are held out to unidentified spectators at the arena by someone in the first-person perspective as shown in a Reel that Metallica shared on their Instagram account. Uncertain of what it meant, why they were receiving them, or if they should trust the person, many of the fans glared back with a certain amount of suspicion.
Metallica captioned the picture with, “Didn’t think we needed to say this, but if someone approaches you with Snake Pit tickets… take them!”
The Snake Pit Experience
As the video played on, some fans accepted the passes, some questioned the gesture, and a few brushed it off. Given the prevalence of ticket scams and fake passes, the skepticism was understandable. However, these were genuine passes, and the fans who received them were genuinely thrilled.
The Snake Pit is a circular standing area within Metallica’s stage, providing an incredibly close view of the band members as they move around during the performance. According to Michigan Live, Snake Pit tickets initially ranged from $1,038 to $4,398, depending on the level of the “experience” package chosen. The most affordable level, known as the “Moth Into Flame Snake Pit Experience,” included extras like a pre-show party, merchandise, and a drink.
A comment on Metallica’s video expressed:
“The person who did this was truly amazing! I was one of the lucky recipients, and it absolutely made my year. I have so much love for this person.”
Metallica’s upcoming concerts are set for September 1 and 3 in Phoenix, Arizona. Afterward, they’ll have a break before participating in the Power Trip festival in Indio, California. This massive event will also feature Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Tool, and AC/DC. More of their future performance dates can be found on their official website.
