Lady Gaga’s Concert Promoters Fighting For Indonesian Concert Permit

Published On May 16, 2012 | Celebrities

We previously reported that the Indonesian concert of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way Ball Tour’ had been cancelled due to the permit being denied when extremist fringe Muslim Groups attempted to use “physical force to prevent her from stepping off the plane.”

New reports from Ace Showbiz reveal that Big Daddy Productions, the promoter’s behind the tour are in a heated battle to have the permit reinstated. Company spokesman Arif Ramadhoni told 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.”

President Director Michael Rusli also announced that the permit was not denied saying, “Our permit application process is still ongoing. We will update again as new developments occur.” “We have received a lot of input and comments — both positive and negative — from different parts of the public. We appreciate the feedback and will digest it over the next few days. It is also our intention to provide clarification, if necessary, to any misinformation.”

However, FPI Jakarta chairman Habib Salim Alatas told AFP: “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.”
The authorities have released a statement indicating that they cannot guarantee the safety of neither Gaga nor her fans. Spokesman Saud Usman Nasution said, “We still deny the organizers the permit. The Jakarta police have said they do not recommend the Lady Gag performance here, and they are the ones responsible for security, so there’s no way around it.”
