Deftones rocked Kuala Lumpur

Deftones Live in Kuala Lumpur

Deftones Live in Kuala Lumpur

Do you remember what you did on Valentine’s Day ? For the thousands of Deftones fans that skipped the whole Valentine’s dinner and instead rocked the night away at KL Live had an incredidble night that will not be forgotten¬†any time¬†soon.

First off I got to confess, I’m not a very big Deftones fan and probably have only heard 2-3 songs that I liked or at least found enjoyable to listen to. Yes you all can start booing now, I’ve somehow managed to miss the whole Deftones phase while growing up. I did manage to speak to a few fans though while waiting for the concert to start and let me tell you; they were stoked !!

Some of them practically grew up listening to Deftones and have waited alm0st 15 years to watch them perform live ! Imagine that, waiting for so long to watch your favourite band on stage, singing the songs you grew up to. Heck, even I was feeling excited despite not being a hard-core fan.

The concert dubbed as the Twisted Valentine had several local celebrities walk down the black carpet. I even spotted One Buck Short, Reza Salleh and Liyana Fizi walking down the carpet.

It’s amazing to see people actually lining up and running into the pit just to be right in front where all the action is. These people are either really hard core fans or just plain crazy I tell you. I guess that’s the whole fun of being in the pit in the first place right ? ūüôā

Deftones cancel Bangkok

Deftones in Bangkok

Deftones in Bangkok

Heard that Deftones cancelled the Bangkok show due to some technical difficulties with the equipment and enraged fans broke into a riot !! Still trying to dig for more info about what the actual cause is.

Who on earth is the organizer and could such a thing be so easily overlooked ? Here is some info on electricity in Thailand.

Must be really heart breaking to be waiting in line for hours and when it’s almost¬†show time,¬†to be informed that the concert is cancelled. I can feel the frustration building up even though I’m not there. That being said violence is never an answer and let’s hope that Deftones make a ¬†trip to Bangkok soon because they totally rocked KL !!

Update

  • Manager pulled the plug, safety of the band members are more important than going on with the show
  • Apparently the equipment brought was 110v where else Thailand uses 220v.
  • Refund for tickets bought from Thai Ticket Major
  • The reason

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.

No more concerts at Bukit Kiara ?

I was appaled¬†when I first heard the rumours about the ban on Bukit¬†Kiara¬†for concerts and then the local newspaper wrote about the ban and the rumours became true. For those who don’t know, there was a 12 hour concert organised by Marctensia¬†over the weekend at Bukit¬†Kiara. I attended the concert and had an awesome time and was rather impressed in fact with the way authorities handled the traffic situation. Those cars that were blocking the road were towed away and traffic was smooth sailing around the Bukit¬†Kiara area.

Kuala¬†Lumpur¬†mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail put the ban on concerts in Bukit¬†Kiara¬†following constant complaints from the Bukit¬†Damansara¬†Residents Association (BDRA). Now thinking back, actually why is BDRA¬†kicking up a fuss when the concert is held in Bukit¬†Kiara¬†? Shouldn’t residents in Sri Hartamas¬†who are much nearer to the venue and who need to drive pass the place be first ones to be knocking on the doors of DBKL ?

Yes, I agree it can be an inconvenience¬†at times especially when motorists do not abide by the law and decide to double park or worst still triple park the cars along the highway in front of the Bukit¬†Kiara¬†club but that didn’t happen this time around. Organisers, realising that it’s a major inconvenience to the road users in the area have bucked up and rectified this issue this time around but of course there’s always another issue on the list.

The next issue raised was the unsightly mess left behind by the concert goers. What tickles me is that instead of blaming the concert goers, what did DBKL do about this ? Did the food operators or merchandisers who were selling their stuff there had proper permission or license to set up stalls in the area ? If parking the cars at the side of the road was considered as a danger and a nuisance what about the make shift stalls that popped up like mushrooms under the bridge in front of the Bukit Kiara club ?

Have you ever driven pass your friendly neighbourhood street after pasar¬†malam¬†(night market) ? I’m pretty sure the whole place is in a mess but somehow with the proper resources to clean up the place, it’s pretty clean the next day. Can’t the same be done in Bukit¬†Kiara ? I’m sure the revenue of such an event would be more than enough to hire people to ensure the whole area is clean before the next morning right ?

It seems like a trend nowadays. When something upsets a certain group of people let’s just ban it without taking into consequences what the impact might be for everyone else. Is it not possible to actually get down to the root cause of the problem and find a compromise ? With such events doesn’t some of the revenue actually channel back to DBKL¬†or even the government ? With the scarce amount of places available to hold such concerts and with the even stricter rules being imposed on organisers, it’s a wonder if we can get any artist to come in perform in Malaysia in the future. It was my first time ever attending¬†a concert¬†in Bukit¬†Kiara¬†and I must say, I was pretty impressed with the venue and how suitable the place was for a concert. So what’s next on the list to be banned ???
