Taylor Swift Cancels Thailand Concert Following Military Coup

Taylor Swift has canceled a sold-out concert in Bangkok, Thailand, following Thursday’s military coup.

Concert promoter BEC-Tero posted the following statement on their website regarding the news: “Due to recent events in Thailand, Taylor Swift’s concert in Bangkok scheduled for Monday, June 9th, 2014 has been cancelled. This has been a difficult decision for all parties.” The promoter expressed “regret and sincere apologies to the fans in Thailand” on behalf of Swift and her management.

Swift tweeted her own apology to fans late Monday.

Thailand is currently under a 10 p.m. curfew and a ban on street gatherings. Last Thursday’s coup d’etat saw the removal of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra after months of political unrest and street protests. Independent media reporting and international TV networks have been suspended in the country since the military seized power, according to CNN.

Swift will continue her “Red” tour throughout Asia, hitting venues in China, Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore.
