Rock singer’s show upsets crowd

PETALING JAYA: A singer pulled down his trousers and showed his boxer shorts during a concert at the anti-fuel price increase rally in Kelana Jaya Stadium yesterday.

The lead singer of rock band Carburettor Dung was halfway through a song when he dropped his pants and showed his boxer shorts.

His antics saw the audience hurling abuses and throwing bottles at him.

In the 7pm incident, PKR Youth security volunteers had to escort the singer and his band members off the stage while event organisers tried to calm the crowd.

It is learnt that prior to his strip performance, the singer was singing a song that included lyrics poking fun at the sodomy allegations against PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

A member of the audience who did not want to be named described the act as inappropriate as there were children present at the event.

Another man, who also wanted to be anonymous, said it was very unprofessional of the singer, adding that he was very upset because many VIPs, including Anwar would be present.

As the situation came under control, event coordinator Hishamuddin Rais came out to apologise for the incident.

The organisers then called for a break for Maghrib prayers.
