Bob Dylan recently finished touring in Japan, South Korea and Seoul but to his own disappointment he  has scrapped  plans to perform in China. Rolling Stone Reports:

The Ministry of Culture was likely also influenced by Björk’s controversial actions during a performance in Shanghai in 2008, where she chanted “Tibet! Tibet!” during “Declare Independence.” Since the Björk concert, the Ministry of Culture has become more cautious when considering Western acts, ruling in the aftermath, “Those who used to take part in activities that harm our nation’s sovereignty are firmly not allowed to perform in China.”

Dylan will continue touring on May 26 in Athens, Greece – kicking off a European tour.
