“Joss Stone and her accomplices have not been arrested but prevented from entering the (Iranian) territory under the law because of the lack of necessary documentation,” the official IRNA news agency quoted Kish Island police as saying.

In a letter published on Wednesday on Instagram, Stone spoke about an incident she encountered when she arrived in Kish Island, Iran, where she planned to sing in the final stage of a world tour that led her to many countries including Syria and North Korea.

“We were arrested and expelled,” she said in a video clip, adding that the authorities suspected she was planning to sing in a public place on this tourist island.

Women in Iran have been banned from singing in private public places since the 1979 revolution.

The Iranian news agency said that the British singer and her accomplices arrived from Muscat and left the following day without giving further information about the motives for preventing her from entering Iranian territory.

“We were aware that it was not possible to hold a public party, because it is not allowed in this country, because I am a woman,” the British singer wrote, without specifying how she would have held her concert.

“I’m very close and far away,” British singer said in the letter that accompanied her with a scarf. “It broke a small part of my heart.”

Before leaving for Kish, the singer had written that the concert in Kish was the number 200 in the Total World Tour she had embarked on five years earlier.

The tour is an ambitious project for the singer to sing in all countries, and concerts were held in countries experiencing security or political turmoil, including Libya, South Sudan and North Korea.
