DBKL will check the appropriateness of organizing the concert
Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will consider the appropriateness of organizing any concerts to be held in the city following protests against such events recently.
Federal Territories Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim said the move was to ensure that no concerts deemed offensive or inappropriate would be organized in the future.
“We should not be influenced by extreme forms of entertainment.
“Although many concerts in Kuala Lumpur have been approved by the censorship committee, DBKL will continue to study the appropriateness of this event,” he said at a press conference after officiating the National Youth Day at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa here today.
He said, parties also received complaints that such events do not encourage social development.
“Entertainment should give a positive impression to the audience,” he said.
He added that he has not yet received any information regarding PAS Youth’s demand to cancel international artists’ concerts, but at the same time he is open to discussing the matter with any party to ensure the well-being of the people is preserved.
Earlier, the organization of the American singer Billie Eilish’s concert was protested by the Head of Pas Youth, Ahmad Fadhli Shaari and urged the government to cancel the scheduled concert featuring international artists.
He also warned that protests would take place across the country if the scheduled concert went ahead.
