    Aerosmith Drops Indonesia Show After Foiled Attack on Burma Embassy

    Aerosmith Drops Indonesia Show After Foiled Attack on Burma Embassy

    JAKARTA—Aerosmith canceled a show in Indonesia after authorities there said they had foiled a bomb plot targeting the Burmese Embassy.

    Concert promoter Ismaya Live cited safety concerns as the reason for the cancellation, but it wasn’t clear if there was a direct connection to the alleged embassy plot.

    The American rockers were scheduled to perform this coming Saturday for a nearly sold-out crowd of 15,000 in the capital, Jakarta, said Helmi Sugara, event organizer spokesman.

    The statement about the cancellation carried an apology from Aerosmith also saying they hoped to make it up to the fans one day. There was no immediate indication they would reschedule.

    Indonesian police said Friday they had arrested two suspected militants and seized bombs the suspects were plotting to use against the Burmese Embassy in Jakarta to protest Burma’s treatment of Muslims.

    Aerosmith started an Asia-Pacific tour in April with their first-ever concert in New Zealand and several shows in Australia. They’re scheduled to play Wednesday in the Philippines.

    Western music acts are popular in Indonesia, but Islamic hard-liners have forced changes or cancellations in the past.

    Lady Gaga canceled what was to be the biggest performance on her “Born This Way Ball” tour in Asia last year. Hard-liners had threatened violence if the concert was held because they saw the pop diva as a corrupting influence.

    Jennifer Lopez, who judged “American Idol” alongside Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler for two seasons, toned down her costumes and dance moves during an Indonesian concert in late November.

    About 10,500 fans waited more than two hours for legendary American rockers Aerosmith to play their first full-length concert in Singapore on Saturday.

    The band were scheduled to start at 8pm on the second and final night of the Singapore Social Concerts at The Meadows in Gardens by the Bay.

    But two little-known bands preceded them with almost full-length concerts of their own. Starting at 7pm, Gugun Blues Shelter from Indonesia performed for 45 minutes, after which Euphoria Audio from Britain took the stage for an hour.

    On Thursday, Aerosmith had played a few songs at the inaugural Social Star Awards, which celebrated the most popular names on the world's top social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Weibo.

    The Straits Times is the official Singapore media partner of the awards and the related Singapore Social Concerts, Hot FM91.3 is the official Singapore radio station and Kiss 92, the supporting Singapore radio station.

    On Friday, the first night of the concerts, about 8,000 people thronged the same venue to watch the performances of South Korean singer Psy, Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen, American soul-pop singer CeeLo Green and Asian girl band Blush.

    or does he just repeat the songs over and over.
