Lady Gaga has cancelled her upcoming concert in Indonesia amid security concerns after weeks of mounting protests from religious groups in the country.

The pop superstar was due to perform in the capital Jakarta on 3 June (12), but the concert was left hanging in the balance after local police recommended the singer be denied a performance permit due to pressure from conservative campaigners opposed to her saucy onstage antics.

However, the Poker Face hitmaker, who offered to tone down her act or even perform solo to avoid causing offence, has now axed the show after protesters threatened to intercept her upon arrival in Indonesia.

Minola Sebayang, a lawyer for promoters Big Daddy, says, "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. This is not only about Lady Gaga's security, but extends to those who will be watching her... Gaga's camp did not want this show to cause any harm to anybody."

Gaga added in a post on her Twitter.com page, "There is nothing Holy about hatred."

Around 52,000 tickets for the concert have been sold and the promoters will now issue refunds.
