Several hundred people turned out in Bangkok (Wednesday) for an entertainment-filled event put on by the Thai military, which carried out a bloodless coup on May 22nd. The performance was seen as a way for the public to show support for the army's action and serve as a public relations counterweight to sporadic but illegal rallies protesting the military takeover.
