After constant threats from the conservative protestors in Indonesia, American singer Lady Gaga has decided that she will not be playing in the sold out scheduled gig on June 3 in Jakarta. Earlier there was some hope that the show could be pulled off, but now it is definitely off.

The show has been shut down despite the assurance from the promoters as well as gaga herself that she would attempt to tone down her sexuality on the show to calm down the religious extremists. The religious extremist were constantly protesting the concert due to which Gaga finally has decided not to perform.

The concert promoter Bid Daddy confirmed that there will be no further efforts to resuscitate the concert. Gaga did not intend to disappoint the local fans but the decision was taken for the safety of everyone involved.

Minola Sebayang, the lawyer of Bid Daddy said, “Lady Gaga’s management has considered the situation minute to minute, and with threats if the concert goes ahead, Lady Gaga’s side is calling off the concert”. The lawyer added that it was not just about Gaga’s security but also for those who were going to watch it. The news has definitely come as a disappointment for all the die hard fans in Jakarta.
