Ai Weiwei cc hafenbar china tightens rules on concerts after elton john show

FEB 17, 2013 – China has tightened its rules on concerts after Elton John dedicated his Beijing concert to Chinese activist Ai Weiwei. Elton John met with Ai Weiwei before the show and Tweeted, "I super like him!". But Chinese officials wrote an Op Ed on Global Times condemning him saying, "John's action will also make the relevant agencies further hesitate in future when they invite foreign artists. John himself is a senior entertainment figure, but has raised difficulties for future arts exchanges between China and other countries."
