AEROSMITH: Jakarta Concert Canceled Due To 'Safety Concerns'
According to The Jakarta Post, AEROSMITH has canceled its May 11 "The Global Warming" world tour concert at JIExpo in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, Indonesia "due to safety reasons."
Promoter Ismaya Live announced the cancelation on its official web site, citing a letter sent by the AEROSMITH publicists Mitch Schneider Organization (MSO) in which the band explained: "Unfortunately, we have to cancel our upcoming show in Jakarta. We want to apologize to all our fans who were expecting to see us and hope that one day we can make it up to them."
The promoter claimed that about 85 percent of 15,000 tickets had been sold.
"Due to the cancellation, we will provide a full refund to the customers starting on May 11," the promoter said.
AEROSMITH is touring in support of its latest album, "Music From Another Dimension!", which was released on November 6, 2012, and debuted at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 album chart, selling 63,000 copies in its first week of release.
