Music legend Bob Dylan has cancelled several legs of an Asian tour after Beijing refused to give him permission to perform in China.



Dylan planned to play in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, following his multi-city tour of Japan last month. “China’s Ministry of Culture did not give us permission to stage concerts in Beijing and Shanghai, so we had to scrap plans,” Jeffrey Wu of the tour promoters, said.
