Metallers' Thailand gig called off at the last minute

Deftones fans riot after Bangkok gig gets cancelled - video
A group of Deftones fans in Bangkok rioted last night (February 15) after the band were forced to cancel a show there at the last minute.

The Californian band were due to perform at the city's 25,000-capacity Thunderdome Arena, but were unable to do so, citing “electrical problems” as the reason for the call-off.

According to the Associated Press, the concert was due to start at 8pm (ICT), but was delayed until 9:30pm, then organisers announced that the show was being called off.

After the announcement most fans went home, but a few hundred reacted angrily, throwing bottles, breaking windows and setting fire to tents and beer booths outside the venue. Watch video footage of the riot by scrolling down and clicking below.

The band issued a statement on their Facebook page, Facebook.com/deftones saying that they hoped to return to Thailand "in the near future", but the gig has not been rescheduled.

No one is believed to have been hurt or injured during the disturbance.
