Tsunami sweeps away boy band mid-performance in Indonesia

Jaw-dropping footage emerging Sunday shows a giant tsunami wave sweeping away a boy band mid-performance in Indonesia.

Crowds can be seen in the shocking video swaying along to a beach-side Saturday performance by the rock band Seventeen — seconds before the natural disaster hits, engulfing the stage.

Loud shrieks can be heard before the 11-second video goes dark.

The band confirmed that their bassist M Awal Purbani, guitarist Herman Sikumbang and their road manager Oki Wijaya were dead.

Two other musicians, a crewmember and the wife of the band’s frontman are still missing.

“Please pray that we can find Andi, Herman and Ujang and my wife,” the lead singer, Riefian Fajarsyah, said in a tearful Instagram video.

Fajarsyah also posted a heartbreaking photo Sunday showing him and his wife, Dylan Sahara, kissing in front of the Eiffel Tower, with the caption: “Today is your birthday… hurry home dear.”

A tsunami hit the Sunda Strait Saturday killing at least 168 people with 745 still missing, officials said.
