The 'Marry The Night' singer promises fans in Jakarta she will put "something special" together for them.
Lady Gaga has confirmed that her upcoming concert in Jakarta, Indonesia has had to be cancelled following threats from Islamic hardliners to cause "chaos".
The 'Marry The Night' singer was denied a permit to perform at the 52,000 seater Gelora Bung Karno Stadium at the start of June, after police became concerned about security risks the concert could pose if it went ahead.
Despite the show's organisers pledges to fight the ban, and Gaga herself promising to perform her 'Born This Way Ball' show alone if the concert went ahead, the 'You & I' singer confirmed last night that they were unable to save the show.
"We had to cancel the concert in Indonesia," Gaga tweeted on Sunday (27th May). "I'm so very sorry to the fans & just as devastated as you if not more."
"You are everything to me," she added. "I will try to put together something special for you. My love for Indonesia has only grown. #GagaSendsLoveToJakarta and all its people."
Gaga's confirmation of the show's cancellation follows a cryptic tweet she posted on Saturday (26th May) saying: "There is nothing Holy about hatred."
Lady Gaga continues her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour tonight (28th May) with a performance at the Indoor Stadium in Singapore.
