In this photo taken May 25, 2014, a protester holds a banner during an anti-coup demonstration in Bangkok, Thailand. The last time Thailand's army seized power, in 2006, some called it "the smiling coup." It was bloodless, and for a time, it was calm. Last Thursday, Thailand's army seized power again, overthrowing a popularly elected administration that won a landslide vote three years earlier. But this time feels much different.

American singer-songwriter Swift has cancelled her scheduled concert in the capital of Thailand, which came under military rule last week after a coup d’etat. Local concert promoter BEC-Tero announced Tuesday, May 27, 2014, on its website that the sold-out nighttime June 9 concert, part of the singer’s Red Tour, has been cancelled “due to recent events in Thailand.” It did not elaborate, but said the move had been “a difficult decision for all parties.”(Photo by Al Powers/Powers Imagery/Invision/AP, File)
