Police: Promoter Fears of Security Threats
"This is the the promoter's pure concern."
VIVAnews – The promoter of Lady Gaga’s concert in Jakarta, Big Daddy, had officially cancelled the concert which was initially to be held on June 3. Big Daddy declared that security factor is the main reason of the abandonment.
Head of Public Relations of Jakarta Police Department, Chief Commissioner Rikwanto, stated that the permit for the concert has never been issued by the National Police Headquarters. He said the permit was being processed when the promoter had decided to call off the concert.
“If the Police have issued the permit, we will certainly be prepared to secure the concert. This is the the promoter's pure concern. Yesterday, they only lacked recommendation from Jakarta’s Tourism Office, but they’ve canceled it while it’s being processed,” said Rikwanto on Monday.
Police are ready to secure the on-site ticket refund to be coordinated by the promoter.
“The tickets will be fully refunded. The Police will help secure the ticket refunding process,” said Rikwanto.
Big Daddy, represented by its President Director, Michael Rusli, mentioned that the decision to undo the concert was received on Sunday morning from Lady Gaga’s management.
“Lady Gaga’s management is concerned about the security threat if the concert is still to be held. They don’t want anyone to be hurt, either from Lady Gaga’s team or the audiences,” said Michael Rusli on Sunday.
In line with the permit, Michael said that it was not a problem.
“The permit was 95 percent completed. There were only one or two more documents needed, but the process was underway,” said Minola Sebayang, legal representative of Big Daddy. The permit they were trying to process is the crowd permit.
