Taylor Swift Cancels Thailand Concert
Wed, 28 May 2014 16:14:40
Taylor Swift has canceled her planned June 9 show in Bangkok in Thailand due to the political drama that has enveloped the country in recent weeks.
A military coup has been staged against the government, with all citizens now beholden to a curfew that is in place from 10PM to 5AM.
The promoters released a statement, which read: "Due to recent events in Thailand, Taylor Swift's concert in Bangkok has been canceled. This has been a difficult decision for all parties. Taylor, AEG, BEC Tero and 13 Management all express regret and sincere apologies to the fans in Thailand."
Swift also issued a tweet, expressing her regrets over canceling and espousing her love for Thai fans.
It's not surprising that Swift had to nix the show, given all the unrest. Fans should not hold it against the pop-country queen, who is headed to Asia for the next leg of her Red Tour.
