JAKARTA, May 6 (UPI) -- Boston rockers Aerosmith canceled their May 11 concert in Jakarta, Indonesia, after a bomb threat was made at the Myanmar Embassy, E! News reported.

Police arrested two suspected militants and confiscated bombs they allegedly planned to set off to protest the country's treatment of Muslims, the report said.

Aerosmith issued a statement apologizing for letting fans down and promising to perform in the country when it is safe.

The band is scheduled to headline Boston Strong, a May 30 benefit at the TD Garden for victims of last month's Boston Marathon bombings.
