Show will go on for rock star Avril on Aug 29
PETALING JAYA: Canadian rock star Avril Lavigne will be performing in Kuala Lumpur after all.
The final decision, after a week of uncertainty, was made at a meeting of senior officials from the Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Ministry yesterday.
The organiser, Galaxy Group, obtained its permit last evening to stage the concert at Stadium Merdeka on Aug 29, sources said.
Avril’s concert here – the launch pad of her Asian dates – made headlines across the world after the Federal Territory PAS Youth told the ministry and the Kuala Lumpur Mayor to ban the event.
The wing had argued that Avril’s concert is “too punk and rock for Malaysian youth especially so during Merdeka month.”
Since then, many have criticised the wing’s move and decisions were purportedly made on the status of the show and its date.
Minister Datuk Shafie Apdal had earlier said the application to hold the concert had to be studied, as they did not want it to coincide with the Merdeka period and the tahlil religious programme on Aug 29.
Shafie had also denied that the ministry’s earlier decision to call off the concert was in response to PAS Youth’s call for the ban.

Yes finally the fans don’t get dissapointed!
PAS Youth was just making noise only. Why DAP don’t say anything? I remember Gwen Stefani’s concert also received the same treatment.
If Avril’s style is deemed too sexually provocative then will she achieve sales locally?
