I dont think so. They just ask for big amount of money, considering it will be the biggest concert in asia. However, i've never heard about the promotor before, it seems like they are really new to this kind of touring thing.
But it wont be canceled, trust me. Therea are also people who are PRO GaGa, and i believe the numbers are even bigger than FPI.
Positive side is, she's getting huge buzz for this concert. Gonna be one of the most remembered concert in my country
To be cleared to perform in Jakarta, Lady Gaga must first obtain clearances from the following:
The Immigration Office, the Manpower and Transmigration Ministry and the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry.
After clearing those bureaucratic hurdles, she must submit additional permit requests to:
The National Police, the Jakarta Police, the municipal police headquarters, police precincts and to the district of the event.
Then, and only then, would the National Police approve a concert.
― As Gaga's permit request/s to the Police were denied, she won't be able to perform
"It’s preposterous how the FPI is meddling in all aspects of life in Indonesia. Now they are trying to prohibit foreign pop singers from giving concerts in Indonesia.
Lady Gaga, just like me, must be laughing her head off because the FPI is providing her with free marketing and promotion.
I have never heard Lady Gaga’s music before but now I’ve managed to find her songs on the Internet. I am sure many individuals in Indonesia must be doing the same thing.
Many of my friends who did not know her music before, after seeing her video clips on internet, have now decided to go and watch her live. The FPI is doing Gaga a tremendous favor. I am sure the stadium will be bursting at its seams trying to accommodate so many people.
Church groups are urging the National Police to reverse their decision to deny a permit for US singer Lady Gaga’s upcoming concert in Jakarta, saying that it will hinder freedom of expression.
The Indonesian Bishops’ Conference (KWI) rights commission secretary Benny Susetyo told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday that the police bowed to pressure from hard-line groups such as the infamous Islam Defenders Front (FPI).
“This is dangerous for our democracy, because our law enforcers have surrendered to such brutal groups. The police should have good reasons to ban Gaga’s concert, not merely because of the groups’ pressure,” he said.
The Jakarta Police have also not issued a recommendation to the National Police to issue a permit for Gaga’s concert on June 3 at Bung Karno Main Stadium in Senayan, Central Jakarta.
While the police have claimed that the decision was made because Gaga “has been spreading ****ography” that is not suitable for local audiences, other organizations such as the FPI have been denouncing the pop sensation.
Commenting on this, Benny said that the police should explain their decision transparently to the public.
“We need to have a non-judgmental attitude in assessing artistic performances. Besides, the freedom of expression is guaranteed within our Constitution,” he said.
The Communion of Indonesian Churches (PGI) chairman Andreas Yewangoe separately hit out over the decision, saying that members of Indonesia’s civil society should be trusted to judge art performances.
“If other parties act like they are the nation’s moral police all the time, Indonesians will not have a chance to grow up,” he said.
In late April, conservative Christian groups in South Korea staged a series of protests against Lady Gaga during her recent concert in Seoul, accusing her of advocating homosexuality and ****ography, The Korea Herald has reported.
South Korean artists and critics, however, called for cultural tolerance among the conservative churches.
The Korea Media Rating Board gave an over-18 rating to the concert, saying her song Just Dance, to be performed at the concert, is “inappropriate” for minors. The singer indirectly criticized the Korean government’s move to enforce the age restriction.
