Lambert Alters Malaysia Gig Following Protests
Gay singer Adam Lambert has spoken out about the furore over his upcoming Malaysian gig, insisting he will tone down his onstage antics to avoid causing offence in the strict Muslim country.
The outlandish star is scheduled to play in the capital city Kuala Lumpur on Thursday (14Oct10), but the planned concert has angered members of the Pan Malaysian Islamic Party, who have accused the star of promoting gay culture in the mainly Muslim country, where homosexual relations are illegal.
Lambert has now agreed to change his act to adhere to the country's strict religious rules.
In a message on his Twitter.com page he writes, "While I don't believe that my Glamnation tour is in any way offensive I have agreed to make a few minor adjustments out of respect for the Malaysian government. Looking forward to a fun show."
