LATEST: Authorities in Iran have denied singer Chris de Burgh is to hold a concert in the country.
It had previously been reported that the singer was to take to the stage in the capital city of Tehran this summer (08), playing to a crowd of 12,000. The move would make him the first Western artist to play in Iran since 1979.
But the Iranian government has now denied that the Lady In Red star is to perform there, insisting he has not applied for a permit for the show, according to local newscaster IRNA.
But De Burgh's spokesperson insists negotiations are still ongoing. He says, "We have been looking into a concert and been working on it for a while. Permission has not yet been granted but we have also not yet been denied."
De Burgh recently recorded a song, The Words I Love You, with Iranian pop band Arian, and visited Tehran in May (08).
