A report claims that a ticketing error has allowed thousands of Black Sabbath fans the chance to purchase tickets for the band’s appearance at Hyde Park in London next week for just £2.50 each.

That’s about $4.25.

A secret link leaked by a promotional company meant for employees of the event organizers allowed people to buy the heavily discounted tickets for the Sabbath show, as well as other British Summer Time festival gigs.

The full-price tickets start at approximately $117.

Most of the discounted tickets are now saying “sold out” or “unavailable.”

Ticketing company AXS told IBTimes UK that the discount was an offer open only to “companies that are connected with the promoter” but added that AEG Live plans to honor all the cheap tickets.

Damn. Someone lost a lot of money with that leak.
