I guess this means that 'She's Gone' and uncensored version of 'That XX' won't be performed. Also say goodbye to anything as sexy as GD's 'Breathe' performance in his 'Shine A Light' concerts or 'She 's Gone' type of visual kei performance for 'Obsession'.
Personally I don't really understand YGE's decision as they could have easily set 19 as rating for one of the dates and 12 for other and still sold out all the tickets. Anyhow, if there is anything sexy or slightly scary in the concert expect another lawsuit as media and that crazy Ministry of Health, Welfare and Family Affair will be all over this concert trying to find something to complain after 'Shine A Light' case.
Also since the tour is named as 'One Of A Kind' I suspect that there is a very high chance that GD won't be releasing the other half of his album in March after all. SMH.
