Adam Lambert promised to tone down his show for the Malaysia leg of his tour – where homosexual acts are a criminal offence.
The openly gay singer was greeted by protesters and riot police – although the protest was peaceful.
Adam, who is known for his kissy displays, said of the show: “I’m just refraining from making one little kiss, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal.”
“As much as I hate to compromise any time, it’s more important to me to bring the people of Malaysia my show [and] to thank them for all the support they have shown me.”
“So to make that slight compromise, I’d say it’s worth it.” Adam added.
