Alanis Cancels Show in Indonesia

September 28, 2004

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) _ Alanis Morissette is the latest international star to cancel a concert in Indonesia due to security fears.

Morissette, who is touring with her new album, ``So-Called Chaos,″ had been set to perform Sunday in the capital Jakarta, concert promoter Rini Noor told local television station Metro TV on Tuesday.

A U.S. travel advisory on Sept. 3 warned of possible terror attacks in Indonesia. Six days after the advisory was issued, a suicide bombing outside the Australian Embassy in the Kuningan district of central Jakarta killed nine people and injured more than 170.

The attack prompted Alicia Keys and British violin act Bond to cancel their concerts in Jakarta. Some groups, however, ignored the warning and have played in the capital in recent weeks, including British boy band Blue and German rock group Scorpions.

Morissette, whose songs include ``Ironic″ and ``You Oughta Know,″ has won several Grammys, including album of the year for 1995′s ``Jagged Little Pill.″
