Definitely Go Play Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is the island in the lower right portion of the map...

Sometimes, you just can't please an underserved market:

Maithripala Sirisena, the Sri Lankan president, is not happy following a few bra throwing incidents at Enrique Iglesias's recent concert out there.

The Spanish-born, US-based pop singer played a date out there (December 20) to promote his tenth album, 'Sex and Love'.

After the gig Sirisena called the bra-throwing "uncivilised behaviour that goes against our culture", the BBC reported, and said that the promoters should be "beaten with poisonous stingray tails".

The Sri Lankan president then made it clear that "these indecent concerts should never receive authorisation again in Sri Lanka".

Sri Lankans probably love this kind of music. They probably love seeing a spectacle at a concert. I feel bad for them because they are led by a reactionary old fart. Musicians everywhere should ignore the president and go get their rocks off in Sri Lanka. More weird stuff! More sex stuff! Make Madonna's costume designer blush!

Doesn't this sound like a stranger version of Footloose than we would normally be used to?
