In 2009, N*E*R*D canceled their first show in Indonesia after a wholly unpleasant experience in Malaysia. Even prior to the performance, Malaysian authorities seemed weary of the band’s allegedly “obscene” stage act. N*E*R*D did end up playing the concert — without a proper permit — but had to endure official questioning as well as having their passports confiscated. Apparently traumatized by the event, the group chose to avoid playing their next show, which happened to be in Jakarta. Thankfully, the trio of Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley seem to have recovered from the experience and will finally be playing a show in Jakarta at Istora Senayan on Monday. N*E*R*D will be touring Indonesia as part of the “Nothing” promotional tour. Thanks to WhyPR.
