Beyoncé has announced that she’ll finally perform a concert in Malaysia despite the dress code.
Bey will take the stage in Kuala Lampur this October 25. “Beyoncé for the first time ever has decided to make Malaysia part of her I Am… World Tour,” read a statement on her Web site.
This comes two years after she originally backed out of a show in Malaysia when members of the Islamic protestors threatened to bust up her concert over her revealing costumes and sexy image.
In light of this new concert a member of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party said Sunday that it would send the country’s government a note protesting the concert. However, this time around they don’t plan to stage a demonstration to disrupt the show.
"We are not against entertainment as long as it is within the framework of our culture and our religion," said Sabki Yusof, the organization’s youth leader of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party. "We are against Western sexy performances. We don’t think our people need that."
One place that doesn’t have a problem with Sasha’s onstage style is Sydney, Austraila, where she performed this weekend. During her concert, Beyoncé brought a little girl named Chelsea, who’s suffering from Cancer, out to deliver a special serenade.
