Metallica fans in India have rioted after the metal titans were forced to push back their live debut in the country until tomorrow (October 29).

The band were due to perform this evening (October 28) in the country's Guargaon Stadium, but had to postpone until tomorrow after encountering "technical difficulties".

After being told the news from the stage, fans, who were already gathered in the stadium, broke through the barriers, stormed the stage and began trashing and hurling equipment around. You can watch a fan shot video of this by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The show will be the first that Metallica have played in India and is still currently scheduled to go ahead. The band have also recently played their first gig in the United Arab Emirates, after performing in Abu Dhabi last month.

Metallica release 'Lulu', their much anticipated collaboration album with Lou Reed, on Monday (October 31). You can watch a video of them discussing the collaboration at the bottom of the page.
