Westlife Halt Show Over Safety Fears05/10/2011 21:23
Irish boy band Westlife halted a show in Indonesia this week amid fears hysterical fans would be crushed or trampled to death.
The Flying Without Wings hitmakers are touring the Far East and jetted into Indonesia for a show in the capital Jakarta, but they were forced to leave the stage for half an hour during the concert on Wednesday (05Oct11) so security chiefs could make sure fans were safe amid fears of a fatal crush building up in the crowd.
In a post on his Twitter.com blog, singer Kian Egan writes, “We had to stop our show in Indonesia for 30 min for the safety of our fans. We feared someone would die. Thankfully no one did.”
