Lady Gaga's Dubai Concert To Be Censored
Lady GaGa's planned performance in Dubai will be toned down out of respect for the country's cultural traditions.
The Poker Face hitmaker's artRave: The ARTPOP Ball tour will land in the conservative Arab country on 10 September (14), and promoters are already making plans to edit out some of the show's racier moments.
Marco Rios, chairman and CEO of AMI Live, one of the companies behind the Dubai concert, says, "There will be some edits for Dubai. It cannot be the full show, because it wouldn't be allowed. So it's a special show for Dubai and for the culture."
In 2012, Gaga scrapped a concert in Indonesia after protests from Islamic groups about the sexual aspects of her show.
The pop superstar kicked off her latest jaunt in Florida earlier this month (May14), where she stripped down to her underwear and bared her breasts during the show.
