Helmi Sugara, event organiser spokesperson, said on Sunday that the legendary American rockers were scheduled to perform on 11 May before a nearly sold-out crowd of 15 000 in the capital, Jakarta.
He said the band cancelled on Saturday, a day after Indonesia announced it had arrested two suspected militants with bombs. They were allegedly planning to attack the embassy in Jakarta to protest Myanmar's treatment of Muslims. It's unclear if the concert's cancellation was directly related to the terror plot or if there was some other threat.
In a statement posted on the promoter Ismaya Live's website, Aerosmith's management apologised to fans.
