Lady GaGa on Indonesia tour date controversy: 'I will perform alone'

By
Lady GaGa has claimed that she will perform her Indonesia tour date by herself if she has to.

The singer has been denied a permit to take her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour to the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta on June 3, after hardline religious groups threatened to cause chaos in protest.

"The Jakarta situation is 2-fold: Indonesian authorities demand I censor the show & religious extremists separately, are threatening violence," GaGa tweeted.

"If the show does go on as scheduled, I will perform the BTWBall alone."

She added: "And don't worry, if I get thrown in jail in Manila, Beyonce will just bail me out. Sold out night 2 in the Philippines. I love it here!"

The show at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium was scheduled to be GaGa's largest headline show in Asia, with the venue having a 52,000-audience capacity.

Lady GaGa will take her 'Born This Way Ball' to the UK on September 8, playing three dates in total. The star has yet to announce the North American leg of the world tour.
