The show must go on in Jakarta! Lady Gaga is planning on ditching her backup dancers and performing solo in Jakarta, Indonesia next month in order to get around a concert ban.
Local police revoked the performance license for the June 3rd show on her ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour after a muslim group have branded the star the “devil’s messenger” over her raunchy stage routines.
Promoters are trying desperately to overturn the ban, and the singer has vowed to strip down her performance to a solo show if it will calm the fears of those worried her performance will be too explicit.
Gaga wrote to her Twitter.com page, “The Jakarta situation is 2-fold: Indonesian authorities demand I censor the show & religious extremist (groups) separately… are threatening violence. If the show does go on as scheduled, I will perform the BTWBall alone.”
Religious extremists have promised they will stop at nothing to make sure the show doesn’t go on, including riots and arrests.
