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.”

While some fans directed their anger at the band, many others placed the blame on concert organisers. Eyewitness Chantakahn Saetehn says: “This country is deprived of good concerts. The crowd was bigger than for any metal band that’s ever visited Bangkok – that’s why we were so upset. But the whole event from buying tickets to the cancellation has been absurd.”
