Last week, RATM announced details of a free gig in London’s Finsbury Park on June 6th to celebrate the band beating this years X-Factor finalist (name shall not be mentioned) to the coveted U.K. Christmas Number 1 slot, ending X-Factor’s monopoly on the position. The bands classic, Killing In The Name Of, grabbed the top place after a facebook campaign was started in the UK specifically designed to beat the X-Factor finalist. KITNO reached number 2 in Ireland.

UPDATE – 10:48 (15th Feb)

Tickets will cost you a pretty steep €67.50. If KISS can manage to play the same venue with a much bigger stage show for €49.5, I’d love to know why Rage have to add an additional €20 for their gig. Seems the anti-capitalist group are making Irish fans pay for their English fans free gig.
