Miley Cyrus has been banned from performing in Dominican Republic.
The Dominican Republic government commission that oversees public performances is banning a Sept. 13 concert by Miley Cyrus on morality grounds.
The commission said in a statement on Thursday that it took the action because Cyrus often “undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law.”
Miley Cyrus has taken the world by storm with her Bangerz tour. People just can not stop talking about all the crazy things she’s done on stage. Miley’s recent tour antics are making her MTV Video Music Awards “Blurred Lines” performance look tame and family-friendly. She opened her highly-anticipated Bangerz Tour in Vancouver, Canada on Feb. 14 and the show had raunchy moments including Miley’s standard twerking, foam finger licking and crotch grabbing.
Tickets ranging from $27 to $370 for the concert at Quisqueya Stadium, in the capital Santo Domingo are said to have been on sale since July.
A representative for Miley did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Concert organizers in the Dominican Republic did not comment on the ban.
The commission in the past has banned from the airwaves songs it considers vulgar, including some by Calle 13 of Puerto Rico.
