Tough new conditions for concerts in Iran capital

Iran's rich poetic and musical history means its religious leaders take a far more flexible approach to the arts than some other Muslim countriesThe Tehran prosecutor recommended strict new rules on Saturday for concerts in the capital, the latest in a tug of war between moderates and conservatives that has already seen live music banned in Iran’s second city Mashhad. Police should record all events, while the culture ministry and the provincial governor should take greater responsibility for the content of performances and the behaviour of audiences, the judiciary’s official Mizan news agency quoted Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi as saying. It comes amid a wave of last-minute cancellations of concerts in Iran under pressure from hardliners and religious leaders which has been criticised by the more liberal President Hassan Rouhani.
