Avril Lavigne Concert Cancelled

UPDATED [Aug 23]: Avril's concert WILL GO ON as planned.

Avril's concert has been CANCELLED!

Excerpts from TheStar Online :

" Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Shafie Apdal said that the concert falls during the nation's independence period and was not a suitable time to hold such a concert.

There are a lot of events on Aug 29 and the Ministry does not want the independence and the near Ramadan month to be filled with such pop and rock culture, he said.
"As the Minister of Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage, we should be instilling good culture in the young but here we are allowing other parties to organise things. "

Something tells me Avril's fans are not too happy......

Indeed our gov. holds true the Malaysia Boleh spirit by CANCELLING this concert just slightly over a week before concert day.

But of course there's better things to look forward to like the EMERGE 2008 Conference which is gonna be held nightly at the Sunway Convention Centre from 29-31st August.

Best of all its FREE!

Check out the opening of last year's EMERGE:

Concert & Life Changing experience happens nightly!
