Filipino fans of pop star Lady Gaga hold slogans outside the concert venue before her performance in suburban Pasay, south of Manila, Philippines, May 21. Authorities in the conservative, majority Roman Catholic country approved the concerts, set for May 21, and Tuesday, but said they won't allow nudity or lewd acts. A religious group warned they will sue Lady Gaga and concert organizers if she sings "Judas" during her concert.

Conservative Christian groups hold placards to protest against the first day of singer Lady Gaga's concert in Manila, May 21. Protesters urged authorities to cancel the show because of the singer's overly sexual content and the use and abuse of religious symbols in her music. Lady Gaga's two-day concert ends May 22.

The show will go on, despite the protests in the Philippines against Lady Gaga. Another of her concerts, planned for June in Jakarta, Indonesia, has been cancelled due to a permit being denied. The sold-out concert was to be the largest of the tour, but concerns about her show corrupting young people led to the cancellation.
