On Tuesday, some Slankers who could not enter the concert’s venue opted to wait outside. Many had come from outside Jakarta, such as Bogor, Bekasi and Bandung in West Java, and Lampung.

The band, comprising Bimbim, Kaka, Ridho, Ivanka and Abdee, previously celebrated its anniversary at GBK in 2003. (wir/kes)
