An Aerosmith concert promoter says the band has canceled next week’s show in Indonesia over security concerns, one day after news surfaced about an alleged bomb plot at the Myanmar Embassy.

Helmi Sugara, event organizer spokesman, said Sunday that the legendary American rockers were scheduled to perform on 11th May before a nearly sold-out crowd of 15,000 in the capital, Jakarta. He said the band canceled 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.

In a statement posted on the promoter Ismaya Live’s website, Aerosmith’s management apologized to fans:
