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

The Bad Romance singer was set to perform in the capital Jakarta on 3 June , but she has since cancelled the show upon police recommendation and threats from conservative campaigners.

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 page: "There is nothing Holy about hatred."

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