Lady Gaga's concert bosses in Indonesia are desperately trying to overturn a ban on the star performing in the country's capital city, Jakarta.
The Poker Face hitmaker is faced with the prospect of axing the Indonesian leg of her Born This Way Ball world tour next month (Jun12) after local police revoked her performance licence.
It came amid a storm of protest from hardline Muslim groups in the country, who have branded the star the "devil's messenger" for her raunchy stage routines.
But officials at Big Daddy Live! have reached out to Gaga's fans, known as 'little monsters', urging them to be patient while the company tries to find a way around the ban.
In a message on Twitter.com, a spokesman added, "Still fighting... We want the best for all Little Monsters", and a representative for the company tells AFP, "We are still in the process of finding a way to do it, and we ask for everyone's patience and forgiveness for the trouble."
A spokesman for the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) vowed its members will cause mayhem if the show gets the green light, adding, "If Lady Gaga still wants to perform here, go ahead. But please be prepared for chaos in Jakarta. We are ready to be thrown to jail and be killed - we will do anything to stop it."
