Bob Dylan denies censorship of China concerts
London: Rock legend Bob Dylan took to his website on Friday to set the record straight on the controversy surrounding his concerts in China last month.
Dylan was criticized for not performing some of his best-known protest songs on his China tour in April fuelling speculations that he had allowed the Chinese government to censor his setlist.
In response to such accusations, Dylan wrote on bobdylan.com that "As far as censorship goes, the Chinese government had asked for the names of the songs that I would be playing," the Telegraph quoted Dylan as saying.
"There’s no logical answer to that, so we sent them the set lists from the previous three months. If there were any songs, verses or lines censored, nobody ever told me about it and we played all the songs that we intended to play," he added.
