“My dearest friends… Owing to adverse weather conditions and persistent rains, it is only made advisable for the health and safety of my beloved fans and friends to reschedule the concert to the nearest best date, with the guidance of the statutory authorities. More details on the new date will follow soon!” Rahman tweeted.
The concert was scheduled to take place on August 12 at the YMCA Ground in Chennai. However, heavy rains in the city led to water stagnation at the venue. This forced the organisers to cancel the concert.
Rahman had expressed his excitement about visiting Chennai and meeting his fans a few hours before the concert was cancelled. “Dear friends attending the Chennai concert tonight, I’m excited to see you all after so long! We request you to leave early and secure your seats early to have a memorable concert experience,” he had tweeted.
Besides the concert, A R Rahman recently made headlines as he completed 30 years in the music industry. He recently held the ARR Film Festival in Chennai, which showcased his work in films over the past three decades.
