When it comes to safety, that's where they draw the line.

Aerosmith has canceled a May 11 show set for Jakarta, Indonesia, amid reports of a bomb threat at the Myanmar Embassy.

Per published reports, concert promoter Ismaya Live scrapped the nearly sold-out gig out of precaution after police arrested two suspected militants and confiscated bombs that the duo were allegedly looking to set off against the Myanmar Embassy in the Indonesian capital to protest the country's treatment of Muslims.

The "Livin' on the Edge" rockers, who would have performed in front of a crowd of 15,000 as part of their current Global Warming World Tour, apologized to fans in a statement, saying they hoped to return to Indonesia one day. No word when they'll make it up.

Aerosmith is scheduled to play in Manila, Philippines, this Wednesday, after which they'll return to their hometown of Boston to headline Boston Strong, a May 30 benefit for the Boston Marathon bombings at the TD Garden.
