    Billboard reports that Metallica's 20-date Australasian tour smashed the ticket sales record at Sydney's Acer Arena, selling a jaw-dropping 74,244 tickets over four sell-out dates in September and November. They apparently love 'Tallica down under.

    

Metallica's feat at the 21,000-capacity arena eclipsed the previous record of 66,247 set by pop tart Britney Spears over four nights on her Circus tour in November 2009. So 'Tallica are cooler than Brit Brit in Oz, huh?

    

 Have you ever seen Metallica in concert? If so, how was it?
