Madonna Concert Given Adults Only Rating in Singapore

Pop star, Madonna’s upcoming concert in Singapore has been given an adults-only rating by local censors.

The ‘Rebel Heart’ concert at the National Stadium on Feb. 28, was rated as “R18” for its sexual references, by the Media Development Authority.

Local promoter MediaCorp Vizpro International confirmed the information on its Facebook page, which warned that only those over 18 would be allowed into the venue.

Singapore’s Straits Times described Madonna’s set list as including: “a segment in which she performs a mash-up of her songs ‘Holy Water’ and ‘Vogue,’ involving scantily clad nuns pole-dancing on cross-shaped stripper poles.”

The Asian leg of the tour starts Feb. 4 in Taipei, Taiwan and runs to March 20 in Sydney, Australia. Other dates include Bangkok, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Macau and Manila, before two nights each in Auckland, Brisbane and Melbourne.

Tickets for the Singapore show go on sales next Tuesday (Jan. 12).

Other concerts in Singapore have also collected MDA warnings, including those of Adam Lambert “Advisory 16 and above (some mature content)” and Lady Gaga in 2012, noted for “some controversial religious content.”

The Madonna Rebel Heart Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring in association with East West Best, Inc. and exclusively supported by King Lun & The UMS Group.
