Muse have cancelled their concert in Turkey.

The Devon-based rock band - who are formed of Matt Bellamy, Christopher Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard - have been forced to postpone their planned gig in the Eastern European country next week after the attempted military coup last Friday (15.07.16) in a bid to overthrow President Recep Erdogan and his government, which was thwarted.

However the trio have taken extra precaution by calling off their performance, which was due to take place at the Blue Night venue in Istanbul on Tuesday (26.07.16) as part of their 'Drones World Tour' because of the danger to their safety, a decision they ''regret'' having to do.

In a statement released by the 'Psycho' hitmakers, they said: ''We regret that, in light of recent capricious events in Turkey, we have decided to cancel our concert which was scheduled to take place on July 26.

''You can get a full refund of your tickets at or all Bile outlets. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.''

However, the musicians are hopeful they can return to the country at a later date to make up for the cancellation.

The explained: ''We look forward to seeing our Turkish fans in the future.''

Meanwhile, Muse have six dates left on their tour and will draw their tour to a close next month when they perform at the Rock Am See festival in Germany next month.
