Marshmello fans in Nepal were beyond excited for him to make an appearance at Deja Vu Club on December 13. Unfortunately, he had to cancel the show as he had a severe case of food poisoning and a 106 degree fever. It’s understandable that he’d need some time to recuperate from that. What lacks sense is what happened next.
Almost seven hours after he was scheduled to take the stage, fans were informed that he would not be coming. That’s when the situation went out of control. Fans started throwing all manner of objects and they chanted obscenities in unison. Watch the events unfold in the video below.
SP Dibesh Lohani, Chief of the Metropolitan Police CID, said that an investigation is underway to determine how the events unfolded. However, he did share some of the confirmed facts with the Himalayan Times.
First off, Deja Vu Club can accommodate a maximum of 3500 people. However, the club owners and organizers sold almost double that amount. Eight people (all club owners or event organizers) were arrested for the amount of tickets sold, as well as ‘misleading the audience’.
Marshmello appeared to have a different take on the events when he apologized to his fans via Twitter.
Nepal. I’m so sorry for not being able to appear for my performance last night at Deja Vu ktm. I was sick with an awful fever, & although I tried to come, the doctor ordered against it. Health first. I love you Nepal Mellogang, thank you for understanding & hope to see you soon.
