British singer Joss Stone admits she was eager to leave Iran before concert in conjunction with a world tour that brought her to Syria and North Korea.
According to a post on Instagram, she resists shortly after arriving at Kish airport after the authorities suspect the singer plans to perform in public.
The women were banned from singing solo in public since the Islamic revolution was founded in Iran in 1979.
“We are aware that there is no general concert that can be held because I am a woman and it is forbidden in this country.
“It’s almost everything happening, something like this hurt me a little bit,” Joss Stone said without explaining the exact location despite being seen wearing a veil in the passage.
The show at Kish would be the 200th event in the World Tour series that started five years ago.
It was the project and the dream of Joss Stone to perform in every country, and the series will also take her to conflict countries such as Libya, South Sudan and the North Korean capital.
Despite being ordered to leave Iran, Joss Stone described herself as being well-served by Iranian immigration officials who were also saddened for not neglecting the country’s rules.
Earlier, the Iranian government summoned the British ambassador in Tehran on Saturday after Britain blamed Iran for the attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, the ISNA news agency reported..
“During the meeting with the Iranian Foreign Ministry official, Iran strongly criticized Britain’s unacceptable position on the attack in the Gulf of Oman. Britain is the only country to support US accusations of attack” Iranian officials said.
British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt issued a statement on Friday blaming Iran and Iran’s Revolutionary Guards for the attack on oil tankers, saying no country or other unofficial body could do so.
