Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has cancelled a sold-out concert in Thailand after the army took control of the country and brought in a nightly curfew.

Concert promoter BEC-Tero announced on its website that the gig was cancelled "due to recent events".

The statement didn't elaborate but called the move "a difficult decision for all parties".

Tweet from Taylor Swift reading: "I'm sending my love to the fans in Thailand. I'm so sad about the concert being canceled.

The performance in the Thai capital, Bangkok, would have taken place on the night of 9 June.

Thailand's military forced the civilian government of former premier Yingluck Shinawatra out last week following months of anti-government street protests.

Swift has other shows in Shanghai, Tokyo, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore in May and June as part of her Red Tour.
