What is more important for you? culture or Lady Gaga? If you will ask any Lady Gaga fan, his answer would be surely latter but the official authorities have to take a holistic approach and that’s what the organizers of the Lady Gaga concert are doing for a planned concert in Dubai in September.
Lady Gaga, who is known for her outrageous stunts and provocative costumes, cancelled a concert in Indonesia in 2012 because of security concerns over objections by Islamic groups to her style.
Marco Rios, the chairman and CEO of AMI Live, one of the three firms involved in bringing Gaga to Dubai said that 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.
The UAE, where expatriates make up most of the population, has had to contend with controversy surrounding international pop artists’ shows in the Muslim state.
In 2012, many Emiratis were enraged by a concert Madonna held in Abu Dhabi, one of seven emirates in the UAE, which that included erotic dancing and a Hebrew prayer.
Censored or uncensored, if you wanna see Lady Gaga performing in your city Dubai then censorship shouldn’t be the issue. We hope that you will enjoy the event to the fullest.
