Jennifer Lopez wowed thousands of fans in Indonesia on Friday, but they received the PG version of her concert, which was deemed more suited for a Muslim audience.

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Jennifer Lopez wowed thousands of fans in Indonesia, but they didn’t see as much of her as concertgoers in other countries after she toned down her sexy outfits and dance moves during her show in the world’s most populous Muslim country, promoters said Saturday.

Lopez’s “Dance Again World Tour” was performed in the country’s capital, Jakarta, on Friday in line with promises Lopez made to make her show more appropriate for the audience, said Chairi Ibrahim from Dyandra Entertainment, the concert promoter.

“JLo was very cooperative ... she respected our culture,” Ibrahim said, adding that Lopez’s managers also asked whether she could perform her usual sexy dance moves, but were told that “making love” moves were not appropriate for Indonesia.

“Yes, she dressed modestly ... she’s still sexy, attractive and tantalizing, though,” said Ira Wibowo, who was among more than 7,000 fans at the concert.
