BANGKOK - Taylor Swift has cancelled a sold-out concert in Thailand, which came under military rule last week after a coup d'etat.

Concert promoter BEC-Tero announced Tuesday on its website that the concert was cancelled "due to recent events in Thailand." It didn't elaborate but called the move "a difficult decision for all parties."

The concert in Bangkok would have been the night of June 9. The country is under a nighttime curfew though it's loosely enforced.

"I'm sending my love to the fans in Thailand," Swift tweeted." I'm so sad about the concert being cancelled."

The American singer-songwriter has other performances throughout Asia during her current Red Tour.

Several other international performers have cancelled or postponed appearances in Thailand during the recent months of political protests and the coup carried out last Thursday.
