Kill Switch’ Activation Confirmed for Coldplay Concert Amid Controversy Over Gaza Situation

In anticipation of tonight’s Coldplay concert at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil has confirmed the implementation of a ‘kill switch.’ The mechanism, discussed between the Central Agency for Application for Filming and Performance by Foreign Artistes (Puspal) and the concert organizer, is designed to halt any deviations from official guidelines during the performance.

Addressing concerns raised by various parties calling for the concert’s cancellation, Fahmi assured that discussions with Puspal and the organizer have been positive. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s endorsement, citing Coldplay’s support for Palestine, further added to the government’s positive outlook on the event.

“We are upbeat for the concert today,” Fahmi stated confidently. The kill switch serves as a precautionary measure to ensure that the concert adheres to regulations and avoids any indecent incidents. The minister also encouraged the public to utilize late-night public transportation to facilitate smooth traffic movement after the event.

The call for the concert’s cancellation had stemmed from considerations about the current situation in Gaza, Palestine, and fears that incidents akin to those involving the pop rock group, The 1975, in July might recur. Despite the controversies, the British band Coldplay’s performance in Bukit Jalil tonight remains a pivotal part of its Music of the Spheres World Tour.
