A spokeswoman for the event organizer said the 20-year-old singer had been scheduled to perform before a sold-out crowd of 6,000 in the capital, Jakarta.

The decision to cancel the concert follows travel advisories issued after three Islamic militants were executed for planning the 2002 terrorist bombings in Bali.

The men called on followers to carry out revenge attacks if their deaths by firing squad were carried out.

Event organizers said they hoped the singer would reschedule the concert for another date.
