Bjork called out “Tibet, Tibet” at the end of a performance of “Declare Independence” during a concert in Shanghai earlier this year, and now every other artist performing in China will have to suffer the consequences: The Chinese Ministry of Culture will now be tightening approvals, and screening all setlists (including encores) in advance in order to prevent performances that “threaten national unity,” incite “ethnic hatred,” and violate “religious policy or cultural norms.” [Reuters]
