Aerosmith have canceled next Saturday's concerts in the Indonesian capital of in Jakarta "due to safety reasons" following an alleged bomb plot, according to Billboard.

The band were scheduled to perform at the JIExpo on May 11th as part of their Global Warming World Tour, but the promoter announced that they have canceled the nearly sold-out show.

The promoter's website ran announcement from Aerosmith's reps that read, "Unfortunately, we have to cancel our upcoming show in Jakarta. We want to apologize to all our fans who were expecting to see us and hope that one day we can make it up to them."

While the band's announcement didn't mention the safety concern in their statement, Billboard reports that that the security concerns may have come from an alleged bomb plot that was targeting the Myanmar Embassy.

Helmi Sugara, a spokesman for the event's organizer, said that the band canceled the show on Saturday. That followed Friday's announcement by Indonesia that they had arrested two suspected militants with bombs.

They report that it was not clear if the show cancelation was directly related to the terror plot or if it was a reaction to some other threat. You can read their report here.
