American diva Beyonce has postponed a concert in Malaysia after the country's opposition Islamist party raised protests against her performance, concert organizers said.
Beyonce's concert was scheduled for October 25 at Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur as part of the world tour I am Sasha Fierce. The new date has yet to be announced, according to a statement from the agency Marctensia dated October 20.
Concert organizers cited moral issues.
The postponement is solely decision of the Artiste and has nothing to do with other external reasons, Marctensia stated.
This is not the first time that Malaysia raises concerns about music performances. In 2008, the same Islamic party tried to ban Canadian singer Avril Lavigne from performing in Malaysia.
This year, Malaysia forbid Muslims from attending to The Black Eyed Peas' concert but later the ban was reversed, ABCNews reported.
