"The spectacle of Lady Gaga must unfortunately be canceled," he told a press conference Michael Rusli, president of Big Daddy, which organized the event.
"The reasons are complex," said the lawyer Big Daddy, Minola Sebayang, citing no further details "threats if the concert was taking place."
The Defenders Front of Islam (FPI), well known for his often violent raids against the bars and massage parlors, promised "chaos" if the star of pop trash occurred in Jakarta. The REIT had assured to be able to raise "30,000" demonstrators to prevent Lady Gaga, gay rights activist, "spreading his faith satanic".
The Indonesian National Police, following a recommendation from its counterpart in Jakarta, had assured last week that it would not grant permission to the show scheduled on June 3, whose 50,000 tickets sold out in about two weeks.
Lengthy negotiations had followed in an attempt to find a compromise, saying the organizers prepared to mitigate the most challenging sides of the star but his manager had rejected any watered down version of the concert.
