American pop singer Adam Lambert was apparently unaware that his concert on Friday at The Star Theatre has been the subject of a complaint.

At press interviews today, he emphasised that his show, his first solo full-length concert here, promotes "love, acceptance, positivity, joy, connection".

He landed here on Wednesday, the same day the Media Development Authority gave his concert an "Advisory 16 and above (some mature content)". This means the concert is believed to contain material that may not be suitable for younger audiences, but admission will not be restricted to anyone under the age of 16.

Last Saturday (March 2), The Straits Times reported that the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) had received a complaint from a Christian that "the gay lifestyle may be promoted at the concert, and that the concert venue is owned by a church".
