Beyonce may have to dress more demurely for her Malaysian gig
R&B star Beyonce has announced plans to perform in Malaysia, two years after scrapping a concert over the country's strict dress code.
The singer is due to stage a leg of her world tour in the capital Kuala Lumpur next month, according to her website.
In 2007, her planned appearance drew opposition from the Islamic Party and organisers said the concert was called off due to "scheduling conflicts".
Female performers are expected to dress and behave conservatively in Malaysia.
Islamic groups have already expressed their opposition to the concert and say they will send a protest note to the government.
"We are against Western sexy performances. We don't think our people need that," said Sabki Yusof, youth leader of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party.
Organisers for Beyonce's show, which will be her first career performance in Malaysia, have yet to comment.
The singer performed in Indonesia after shelving the concert in 2007, where rules governing stage performances are more relaxed.
Other singers have encountered problems with performing in Malaysia, including The Pussycat Dolls, who were censured in 2006 after their concert flouted the rules.
