On several occasions, Slank often refers to Bali as their second home. In the action towards midnight last night, drummer Bimo Setiawan Almachzumi conveyed a special message to Slankers Bali.
“Although a million times, never get tired of spreading the virus of peace in Indonesia,” Bimbim shouted from the stage. Thousands of Slankers who were present also cheered to hear their idol give the message. A moment later, Slank sang their hit, “Virus.”
