Beyonce postpones Malaysia music concert


MUMBAI: US singer Beyonce postponed a planned concert in Malaysia following accusations by Islamic conservatives that the show would be immoral.

The Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party called for the show in Kuala Lumpur to be scrapped because it would promote Western sexy performances.

Organisers said the concert, which was due to be held on 25 October, would be postponed to a future date. Beyonce previously called off a 2007 concert over the country’s dress code.


"The postponement is solely [the] decision of the artiste and has nothing to do with other external reasons," organisers Marctensia said in a statement.
