The good news of the week is that common sense has prevailed, and the Avril Lavigne concert will go on as scheduled on the 29th of August - as an actual concert with jumping and screaming we hope! So says Avril Lavigne and so say the organizers. The Ministry that a few days ago ordered the concert to be postponed has yet to issue an official statement.
We'll reserve counting our chickens to when they hatch. Malaysian authorities have reversed their decision to cancel a concert by Canadian pop-rock star Avril Lavigne, saying Saturday that she can perform next week despite complaints her act is "too sexy." The ministry's secretary-general, Muzahet Masruri, said Saturday that authorities decided after talks with the concert organizers that Lavigne "can do the show" next week, even though the government would still have preferred a different date.
