They staged a boycott of the heavy metal band of their 22nd May concert. This concert would take place in Tel Aviv, but the ticket price at $159 was too high for the bands Israeli fans. Their boycott proved successful, and the band has agreed to lower down the ticket prices exclusively for them.

The organizer of the 22nd May concert at the Ramat Gan stadium upset lots of fans when he said that the ticket prices were at least $159. Then two die-hard fans - Tomer Mussman and Rotem Horovitz started the boycott. They even set up a Facebook page on the boycott, where more than 500 Metallica fans agreed to be a part of it.

Finally the organizers and the promoters of the show were left with no alternative, but to have a meeting with the two of them, and come to a mutual agreement. The boycotter Tomer said, “After a four-day campaign, tens of news items about us worldwide, over 6,000 supporters and numerous media interviews, we can say that we did it! We won!” after the agreement, they are now asking everyone to ditch the boycott and be part of the 22nd May concert.
