Lady Gaga has said she was "devastated" at having to cancel her show in Jakarta, Indonesia this week.

In a series of tweets the singer wrote: "We had to cancel the concert in Indonesia. I'm so very sorry to the fans & just as devastated as you if not more. You are everything to me." She added:




Earlier this month, the singer was refused a permit to perform in the city on June 3 after Islamic groups in the country expressed opposition to her "vulgar" style.

The 'Born This Way' singer had hinted that the show might go ahead if she toned down her performance.

Lady Gaga's tour kicked off in controversy last month (April 27) after authorities in Seoul, South Korea implemented a strict adults only policy at her show, banning anyone under the age of 18 from attending her first tour date.

The age restriction was imposed after a ratings board deemed the performance unsuitable for children, following earlier protests from Christian groups claiming the singer was "obscene" and could "taint" young people prompted the local government to make the gig an over-18s gig.

Gaga is touring Europe as part of her Born This Way Ball tour and will now also play Manchester's Evening News Arena on September 11 and a one-off date in Ireland at Dublin's Aviva Stadium four days later. The Darkness will support on all dates.
