Taylor Swift has canceled her first-ever concert in Thailand. 

The Hollywood Reporter says the country-pop star postponed her June 9 show in Bangkok due to last Thursday's military coup, which left all citizens subject to a 10 p.m. curfew. 

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

“This has been a difficult decision for all parties,” the promoter BEC-Tero Entertainment said. 

Swift still has several dates scheduled. She'll resume touring duties on May 30 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China, and make stops in Tokyo, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore.

But for now, One Night in Bangkok is on permanent hold.
