Spanish Rock Band Fined for Comments During Concert

A court in Murcia, Spain, has confirmed the fine of €700 for the singer of the band Rokavieja for disturbance of public order. During a concert in 2016, the local police had to evict a person from the venue who had lit a flare. The singer responded by shouting "Let's see if you can hold him" and singing the popular refrain "Too much police, too little fun". According to the judge, these expressions "in a packed public gathering and as a direct response to the intervention of the police in light of an infraction" were not appropriate and could have triggered grave reactions from the audience.
