"Why Ban Pro-Palestine Band From Performing?" PM Anwar Addresses Calls To Cancel Long-Awaited Coldplay's KL Concert

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is set to engage in discussions with the mufti concerning the Coldplay concert, part of the Music Of The Spheres World Tour, scheduled for the following day in Kuala Lumpur. This action comes in the wake of several demands for the cancellation of the concert. Notably, the band from the United Kingdom (UK) has shown support for Palestine, as highlighted by the Prime Minister.

Speaking during the Minister's Question Time in the Dewan Rakyat, Anwar Ibrahim acknowledged the existence of issues surrounding the approval of the concert by the previous government. He emphasized the need to explore the situation further due to the involvement of Palestinian movement lobbyists, questioning why a group supporting the Palestinian cause faces impediments to perform.



Addressing concerns raised by Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal regarding the government's stance on the Coldplay concert and similar performances, Anwar Ibrahim iterated his commitment to revisit the matter if raised due to disagreements on various issues. 


Previously, Federal Territories Mufti Datuk Luqman Abdullah called for the cancellation of the Coldplay concert, citing the band's advocacy for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) group, which is deemed contradictory to Malaysia's cultural values and ethos.


Will the concert be cancelled? Malaysians will be staying tuned.
