Indonesia concert organisers "fighting" to host Lady Gaga gig after permit problem

The organisers of an upcoming Lady Gaga gig in Indonesia have said that they are "still fighting" to host the show despite permit problems.

As previously reported, the singer's show on June 3 has been shrouded in doubt after police revealed that they are unlikely to award the singer a permit for the concert.

They said it was because of objections within the country to Gaga's stage show and clothing - but organisers Big Daddy Productions tweeted that they are still hoping to reverse the decision. They said:

"Little monsters, be patient please. We will keep you updated. We are still fighting."

The AFP reports meanwhile that one of the dissenters, the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), told them that they will do all they can to stop the show from happening. FPI Jakarta chairman Habib Salim Alatas said:

"If Lady Gaga still wants to perform here, go ahead. But please be prepared for chaos in Jakarta. We are ready to be thrown to jail and be killed - we will do anything to stop it."
