Metallica venue change: Good and bad

Schalk Burger says:

Waiting for an email from Big Concerts to see if we are still able to go to the show on the 24th. We are six people from Namibia that have paid for airplane tickets and booked accommodation near Green Point Stadium.

We will now lose our deposits on the accommodation as we have decided to book a place near the Velodrome. We also might have to stay in Cape Town longer should we not get a flight back immediately due to the change In date.
It's irritating, but the upside is that I think we will be experiencing a much more intense show! 
Another user says: The Metallica concert venue change is such a disappointment. The Velodrome has horrible sound quality and it is just an inferior music concert venue. Fans should get the option to cancel their Metallica tickets!

Saul Miller says: I think it's extremely unprofessional and I want a refund.

Lize Ryan says:

Am happy about the fact that it's now indoors. But for those of us who managed to get good seats at the Cape Town stadium now have to pay more for equally good seats. Which is really unfair.

Danie Nel says:

I love it. Now I can almost walk there! Also, the sound should be much better and everything more intimate.
