Music fans may have missed out on one of the hottest tickets in town if they were not quick on the draw today. Home town Danish favourites Volbeat sold out two concerts in Denmark in just 10 minutes. Tickets went on sale at 10 am this morning, and they were all gone by 10:10.

The rockers will play the Jyske Bank Boxen on October 19 and Copenhagen’s Forum on October 17.

From music to murder
For those who prefer mayhem to music, tickets are now on sale for ‘A Conversation on Making a Murderer’ with lawyers Dean Strang and Jerry Buting at DR Koncerthuset, Studie 2 on Friday August 26.

Strang and Buting were both involved in the case of Steven Avery, a man from Wisconsin in the US who was the subject of the American web television series ‘Making a Murderer’.

A twisted tale
The documentary covered how Avery served 18 years in prison for the sexual assault and attempted murder of Penny Beerntsen, before being exonerated in 2003. In 2005, he was arrested in connection with the murder of Teresa Halbach, a local photographer, and convicted in 2007. The series also covers the arrest, prosecution, and conviction of Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, who was also charged in connection with the murder.

The series was filmed over the course of ten years, with the creators moving back and forth between New York City and Wisconsin during filming. A petition to the White House to pardon Avery garnered more than 500,000 signatures.

Attendees at the event on August 26 will be able to hear Strang and Buting discuss Avery’s case and the documentary. Tickets are 240 kroner and available at livenation.dk.
