Marylin Manson show in Moscow canceled over "bomb threats"
MOSCOW. June 28 (Interfax) - A planned Moscow concert on Friday by American rock band Marylin Manson was called off because of "bomb threats," lead singer Marylin Manson said.
"Bomb threats have cancelled our show in Moscow, just as we were about to perform," Manson wrote on Twitter.
A spokesman for the Moscow police authority confirmed to Interfax that "a signal to that effect had been received and the police investigated it." He said there had been no threat to anyone.
Earlier, another planned Marylin Manson show, one in Novosibirsk on June 29, had been canceled after massive Christian protests. Orthodox activists and some Protestant organizations held a demonstration with icons and banners condemning homosexuality, which is allegedly propagandized by the musicians.
A group of Orthodox activists also asked the regional prosecutor's office to look into effects of Marylin Manson performances on minors.
Marylin Manson fans reacted with an official complaint, claiming that Orthodox activists latter, in condemning the band's ideology at a public rally, described various forms of homosexual sex in the presence of numerous children.
At the same time, Novosibirsk Mayor Anatoly Lokot told reporters: "Law enforcement has found nothing reprehensible about [Marylin Manson's] repertoire - nothing that would have violated Russian law."
