Malaysia has some strict rules on bringing foreign acts into the country and the Government has allowed hip-hop group Black Eyed Peas to perform under a few conditions, the first being that the concert is only open to non-Muslims over 18.
The Information, Communication and Culture Ministry has also stated that the brewery will not put any logos or sell the brew at the concert. The group will be performing for Arthur's Day in Sunway Lagoon with an RM103 entry fee.
Kuala Lumpur is the Asia-Pacific venue for Arthur's Day, celebrating founder Arthur Guinness who opened the brewery in Dublin in 1759 with a 9,000-year lease and is one of the world's most recognisable brands. Malaysia, which prides itself for being a Muslim nation, is one of the top 10 Guinness consuming countries in the world.
There will be spectacular events in major cities like New York, Vancouver, Australia and Indonesia as well as in hometown Dublin and London.
Update: The Malaysian government has backtracked on its initial decision to not allow Muslims to attend the Black Eyed Peas concert which headlines Guiness Arthur's Day celebrations while alcohol will also be available during the event.
