Aerosmith Passes On Gig In Jakarta

JAKARTA, Indonesia (May 5, 2013)--Aerosmith has canceled next week's show in Indonesia over security concerns, one day after news surfaced about an alleged bomb plot at the Myanmar Embassy, a promoter said.

Helmi Sugara, event organizer spokesman, said Sunday that the legendary American rockers were scheduled to perform May 11 before a nearly sold-out crowd of 15,000 in the capital, Jakarta.

He said the band canceled Saturday, a day after Indonesia announced it had arrested two suspected militants with bombs.

The two are accused of planning to attack the embassy in Jakarta to protest Myanmar's treatment of Muslims.

It's unclear if the concert's cancellation was directly related to the terror plot or if there was some other threat.

In a statement posted on the promoter Ismaya Live's website, Aerosmith's management apologized to fans.
