AR Rahman postpones his North America Tour 2020 because of Corona Virus!
It is common knowledge that almost the entire world has gone into lockdown mode because of the rapidly spreading COVID-19 Corona Virus pandemic. This life threatening disease, which originated in the Wuhan Province of China, has already claimed thousands of lives the world over and many people who are affected are undergoing treatment in quarantine. Most of the countries have advised their citizens to go into self quarantine and isolate themselves within their homes and also maintain social distancing. This has caused many industries to go into hibernation mode and has also affected the movie & entertainment industry badly!
The Mozart of Madras AR Rahman had earlier announced that he would be touring North America, this Spring season. The #NorthAmericaTour2020 hashtag went viral on social media and many people from those regions expressed their happiness at this news. However, with the ongoing quarantine and suspension of travel across countries, AR Rahman has had to postpone this tour, even though it had only been planned for the Spring season. AR Rahman has taken to his Twitter account to post a couple of tweets mentioning that he has postponed this tour to next year (2021), in the wake of the Corona Virus pandemic. Though this is sure to disappoint many people, the rationale behind this should be appreciated and there has been a very good response for this news!

There is nothing more important to me than sharing my music with my loyal fans throughout the world. Unfortunately, this is a moment when we should be in our homes with our families. So with the health and welfare of you, my fans, my family & my band, #NorthAmericaTour2020 (1/2)— A.R.Rahman (@arrahman) March 26, 2020
I am postponing the May & June North American tour until next year. At that time we can come together to once again share our music and community. I will be sure to update you over time, and I am praying for everyone’s health and safety. #ARRLive #NorthAmericaTour2020 (2/2)— A.R.Rahman (@arrahman) March 26, 2020
