Taylor Swift has cancelled her upcoming concert in Thailand due to the political unrest in the country.

The 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer was due to perform in Bangkok on June 9 but has decided to pull the plug on the show now the Far East nation is under military rule following the army's coup last week.

Taylor, 24, took to Twitter to express her regret over the cancelled concert, tweeting: ''I'm sending my love to the fans in Thailand. I'm so sad about the concert being cancelled.''

Concert promoter BEC-Tero posted a statement on its website confirming that Taylor would not be appearing in Bangkok.

The statement revealed that ''due to recent events in Thailand'' the musician would not be coming to Bangkok but it was ''a difficult decision for all parties''.

The next stop on Taylor's 'Red Tour' is the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China, on May 30.
