Band won't travel to Indonesia after warning of potential attack
Good Charlotte have cancelled a gig in Indonesia over safety concerns.
The Maryland pop punkers were due to perform next Friday (April 22) at the Boshe VVIP Club in Bali, but pulled out after the Australian government advised them that travelling to Indonesia would be potentially unsafe.
In a statement on their official website Goodcharlotte.com, the band said: “We were really looking forward to appearing in Bali next week, but safety has to come first so obviously the right call has been made.”
The statement also indicates that the gig will be rescheduled for later in the year.
The band’s decision comes after the Australian government posted a warning on its official travel advice website Smartraveller.gov.au.
The warning reads: “We advise you to reconsider your need to travel to Indonesia, including Bali, at this time due to the very high threat of terrorist attack.”
