Deftones - Deftones Gig Cancellation Causes Angry Protests

Fans of the DEFTONES wrecked a venue on Tuesday night (15Feb11) when the rockers' gig in Bangkok, Thailand was axed - 90 minutes after they were due on stage.
The band was scheduled to perform at the city's Thunderdome arena, but an hour-and-a-half after their time slot, organisers announced the show would no longer go ahead due to electrical problems at the venue.
Police lieutenant Tawatchai Jongyingcharoen says, "(The crowd) started throwing bottles at the stadium building, breaking windows and vandalising tents and beer booths outside the venue. Some of the tents were set on fire."
Now the Deftones have reached out to their fans to apologise.
In a post on Twitter.com, a representative writes, "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 apologise to those that were inconvenienced and hope to return to Thailand in the near future. Refund info to follow soon."
The Associated Press reports no one was injured or arrested during the incident.
