The Blenheim man whose petition helped bring rock legends Metallica to Christchurch is "absolutely slaughtered" that he missed out on a ticket.

Jamie Woods said he could not get to Christchurch last Thursday to get door sales, and he was not fast enough to pick up a ticket on the internet.

"I'm absolutely slaughtered ... but I'm resigned to the fact I'm not going.

"In the end I got what I wanted, that was for them to come down. I hope everyone else is happy, the lucky buggers."

The 20-year-old was one of many hard-working fans who campaigned to bring Metallica to Christchurch.

He organised a petition which was distributed around the South Island in May and gathered 11,285 signatures in one day.

Tickets to the September 22 show sold out in five minutes, while those for the September 21 concert were gone in 28 minutes.
