Beyoncé Knowles cancels her 'family friendly' Malaysian concert




Singer is said to have told promoters she was not willing to tone down her Kuala Lumpur show

Beyoncé Knowles has cancelled her Malaysian concert after she reportedly refused to cover up.

The 'Crazy In Love' singer is said to have told promoters she was not willing to tone down her Kuala Lumpur show on November 1 to appease Muslim critics.

Pineapple Concerts issued a statement on Friday (28.09.07) announcing the cancellation but refused to give a reason.

The 26-year-old star had been asked by Pineapple Concerts to make her show more "family friendly" following Muslim protests.

Razlan Ahmad Razali, chairman of Pineapple Concerts, said: "We've informed Beyoncé's management about this issue of clothes, but it takes some of the fun out of it.

"Beyoncé won't be able to do the kind of show here that she does elsewhere."

Tickets for Beyoncé's show at Kuala Lumpur's 9,000-seat Putra Stadium had not yet gone on sale.

The Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage introduced rules in 2005 stating female performers must show no skin from the tops of their chests to their knees.

Last month, Gwen Stefani chose to don a series of different flesh-covering outfits when she performed in front of 7,000 fans in Kuala Lumpur.
