BEC Tero has cancelled the sold-out Taylor Swift Red Tour 2014 concert on June 9 at Impact

Arena, Muang Thong Thani, because of the political situation.

BEC Tero Entertainment informed its customers of the cancellation via ticketing website

Thaiticketmajor.com .

The tickets at prices between 2,000 and 6,500 baht had already sold out.

On her Twitter account @taylorswift13, the pop star wrote “I’m sending my love to the fans in

Thailand. I’m so sad about the concert being cancelled.”

The official cancellation notice on her website said only that the cancellation was “due to

recent events in Thailand”.

The concert is part of the US crossover country megastar’s planned Asian tour to start on

Thursday in Shanghai.

Additional concerts are in Tokyo on Sunday, on June 4 in Jakarta, June 6 in Manila and

ending on June 12 in Singapore. Every concert is sold out.

Ticket holders can get refunds from all branches of Thaiticketmajor from Thursday until

June 30.

A 10pm-5am curfew has been imposed on Bangkok since the May 22 military coup.
