A HUGE crowd watching the Mindanao finals of Red Horse Muziklaban, an annual battle of the band sponsored by San Minguel Beer, turned unruly Saturday evening, prompting one of the country's leading bands to cut short their performance.

The event was stopped even before the winner of the competition was announced. The winner will represent Mindanao area in the grand finals slated in Manila in February, next year.

Slapshock, a Filipino rap-metal band, was performing their second song at the jam-packed Taboan at MTS when some of those in the audience went wild, throwing chairs and plastic cups and bottles of water.

No one was arrested, but security personnel of MTS appeared to have failed to control the unruly crowd, prompting the band to cut short their performance after the third song.

"We were to perform seven songs, but were told by the management to cut it. The crowd appeared to have been so excited," Slapshock frontman Jamir Garcia told Sun.Star Davao backstage.

"Maybe because of their passion in our kind of music, that's why they reacted that way," he said.

Garcia said the band should have played new cuts included in an international album they will release in February.

"We wanted to perform pa, but we were told to cut it short," he said.
