Lady Gaga's Indonesian Concert Organisers Fight To Overturn Ban
Concert bosses in Indonesia are urgently trying to overturn a ban on Lady Gaga performing in the country's capital city, Jakarta.
The Poker Face hit-maker is faced with the prospect of canceling the Indonesian leg of her Born This Way world tour next month after local police revoked her performance license.
It came amid a storm of protest from hardline Muslim groups in the country, who have branded the star the "devil's messenger" for her raunchy stage routines.
Nevertheless, officials at Big Daddy Live! have reached out to Gaga's fans, known as 'little monsters', urging them to be patient while the company tries to find a way around the ban.
In a message on Twitter.com, a spokesman added, "Still fighting... We want the best for all Little Monsters", and a representative for the company tells AFP, "We are still in the process of finding a way to do it, and we ask for everyone's patience and forgiveness for the trouble."
A spokesman for the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) vowed its members will cause mayhem if the show gets the green light, adding, "If Lady Gaga still wants to perform here, go ahead. But please be prepared for chaos in Jakarta. We are ready to be thrown to jail and be killed - we will do anything to stop it."
