if it's true that she's looking to play here, my guess is that the first half of that is true and the second is probably some bull**** or at least unverifiable - that is, they probably asked for a list of songs (which is just what the ministry of culture likes to do) but i highly doubt the part about a list of banned songs is true. identical rumors - some pervasive enough to be mentioned in the new york times - went around about bob dylan's performances here in the spring of this year, complete with specific songs that were forbidden, but turned out to have no sources whatsoever. people like to get sensationalist about the commies.
