Motley Crue concert cancelled
amid alleged Twitter tussle

Glam metal band Motley Crue from Los Angeles has decided to cancel their concert in Jakarta on Oct. 8 following alleged provocative comments on microblogging site Twitter, the event promoter said.

“Many people have mentioned the band personnel in their feeds. They upset the artists with their many questions. That is why they cancelled the concert,” said Astri from Mlive Music on Saturday at Pisa Cafe in Menteng, Central Jakarta, as quoted by tribunnews.com.

Astri alleged that certain parties had attempted to sabotage the concert by attacking them via social networking sites.

“That is what happens in business. We definitively do not want to play around by inviting them because of course we do not want to tarnish our own image,” she said.
