Chinese rocker Cui Jian pulls out of China's Spring Festival
A legendary Chinese rocker Cui Jian has pulled out of China's Spring Festival Gala because the organizers tried to censor his performance.
His manager You You said that he was denied permission to sing his song 'Nothing to My Name', and was instead asked to choose another, the BBC reported.
In 1989, he had performed to the song for protesting students in Tiananmen Square, who took it as an unofficial anthem of the 1989 pro-democracy protests, but China's Communist party soon ordered the military to end the demonstrations which led to the death of many.
With the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Square just a few months away, Cui Jian had appeared to be a risky, political choice for such a primetime performance.
