Lady Gaga's concert is scheduled to take place on June 3rd, 2012 and the concert tickets have been sold out. However, there are certain parties who have objections to Lady Gaga's concert happening and this issue is now being compromised.
Lady Gaga’s fans gathered at National Monument (Monas) in Jakarta. They all wanted Lady Gaga’s concert to take place in Jakarta, Indonesia, on June 3rd, 2012. Most of the fans are still in their teens. In addition to meeting one another as Little Monsters, designation of Lady Gaga’s fan, they also used the opportunity to practice dancing the way Lady Gaga does. The fan of Lady Gaga expressed their hope by showing the placards saying “Indonesia Wants Gaga”. They also carried some posters of the singer who sings “Bad Romance”. They plan to feature choreography that they are learning if the concert takes place.
The concert of Lady Gaga is doomed to failure as the permission from the police is not issued yet for the simple reason that other parties still have some objections to Lady Gaga’s concert taking place in Indonesia.
Related to the polemic of Lady Gaga’s concert, Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Djoko Suyatno said that he had conveyed the issue to Police Chief in order that Lady Gaga’s manager and the event organizer can compromise to find a solution. The compromise should discuss costumes, place, choreography, and motions of background dancers and Lady Gaga herself. Besides that, the target songs should also be agreed to so as not to give vulgar impressions.
Meanwhile concert tickets have been sold. Those who have bought the tickets wish the concert would go on. Dewi Rezer, an artist who also has bought the ticket is looking forward to Lady Gaga’s concert taking place on June 3rd, 2012. Why should the concert be cancelled just because of Lady Gaga’s songs and performance considered to give bad impact on Indonesian citizens?
