President Of Sri Lanka Condemns Organisers Of Enrique Iglesias SHOW

Organisers behind a recent ENRIQUE IGLESIAS concert in Sri Lanka have come under fire from the country’s president after a number of female fans displayed “uncivilised” behaviour during the show.

The Hero hunk performed in the capital city of Colombo on 20 December (15) as part of his Love and Sex world tour, but his gig has sparked controversy after reports emerged suggesting women tried to rush the stage to kiss the singer, while others threw their underwear at him as he played.

Public displays of affection are frowned upon in the conservative country and the news has upset President Maithripala Sirisena, who suggested gig promoters should be punished for fans’ unruly behaviour.

“This is most uncivilised behaviour that goes against our culture,” the president said during a public meeting.

“I don’t advocate that these uncivilised women who removed their brassieres should be beaten with toxic stingray tails,” he added, referring to an ancient punishment, “but those who organised such an event should be.”

President Sirisena also expressed his dismay at the high price of tickets, which reportedly ranged from $35 (£23) to $350 (£233).

Organisers have yet to comment on the President’s criticism.
