Deftones Fans Riot After Canceling Gig.
Hundreds run amok after band are forced to cancel Bangkok show because venue power supply is deemed to be unsafe
The event was already running 90 minutes late by the time the waiting crowd were told to go home. Hundreds of angry gigglers began throwing bottles, breaking windows and setting fire to beer tents.
Deftones have apologised for the call-off, stating: “Local power issues threatened the safety of the band and fans. We’re sorry to those who were inconvenienced and hope to return to Thailand in the near future.”
