Parokya Ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda took to Twitter to express his opinion on the cancelled ASEAN Music Festival on Tuesday night where his band was performing.

"Di daw kasi ni ini-expect na ganun kadami ang pupunta kaya di nila napaghandaan ng maayos," said Miranda, who has 2.12 million followers on the platform.

"May this serve as a lesson na maging mas handa nextym. Long live OPM!," Miranda wrote.

An estimated 15,000 fans crammed themselves into the Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati City for the concert.

Organizers were forced to cancel the event during the set of Miranda's band after concertgoers reportedly became unruly, causing some people to pass out.

As of this posting, Miranda's has garnered 2,700 retweets and 12,000 likes.

Indie folk band The Ransom Collective, who was supposed to perform at the show, also shared their sentiments on Twitter.

The group apologized for the cancellation, but they said organizers "chose to prioritize the safety of everyone instead."

"It was a tough decision but all the artists understand. We all just want to support #ASEAN2017," the band wrote.
