Lambert Overcomes Protests To Rock Malaysia

ADAM LAMBERT took to the stage as planned in Malaysia on Thursday night (15Oct10) following a day of demonstrations outside the venue.
The outlandish gay singer faced fierce criticism from religious groups in the country over his gig in Kuala Lumpur, with members of the Pan Malaysian Islamic Party voicing fears the singer would be promoting homosexual culture in the mainly Muslim state, where same-sex relations are illegal.
The group staged a day of protests outside the Putra Indoor Stadium on Thursday, with campaigners holding prayer vigils at the entrance, handing out anti-Lambert flyers and holding up signs reading, "It's not our culture!"
Police barred the activists from entering the venue, but a small group was allowed in to continue handing out pamphlets, which described the singer as “wild, lewd and extreme".
Around 100 protesters descended on the stadium, but the demonstrations remained peaceful and no arrests were made.
Prior to the concert Lambert reiterated his promise that he would tone down his act, and kept his word by cutting a same-sex kiss from his routine.
