Deftones Cancel=Bangkok Riots [VIDEO]
Deftones fans rioted in Bangkok, Thailand, Tuesday night after the band was forced to cancel a show at the city's Thunderdome Arena. I think anything that happens in or around an actual venue named "Thunderdome" should effectively incite riots. The concert was scheduled to start at 8 p.m., but organizers announced at around 9:30 p.m. that the show was being called off due to "electrical problems."
Thousands of the disappointed concert-goers went home, but a few hundred fans "started throwing bottles at the stadium building, breaking windows and vandalizing tents and beer booths outside the venue.
The Deftones posted an apology on their website and Facebook page saying:
Due to local power issues that threatened the safety of the band and their fans, Deftones were forced to cancel their show last night at the Thunderdome in Bangkok, Thailand. Deftones would like to apologize to those that were inconvenienced and hope to return to Thailand in the near future. Refund info to follow soon.
