French DJ and hitmaker David Guetta’s Bangalore concert, scheduled for Thursday night, has been scrapped—with the organizers citing “law and order situation” (alleged molestation on New Year’s Eve anyone?)—as the primary reason. The 49-year-old EDM producer—who gave us bangers like ‘Titanium’, ‘She Wolf’, ‘When Love Takes Over’, etc—is on a four-city tour which was expected to begin from Bengaluru and then move to Mumbai, Hyderabad, and New Delhi.
Karan Singh, CEO, Sunburn said in a statement, “Due to the present law & order situation in Bengaluru following the events that transpired around New Year’s Eve, the authorities have recommended against holding the David Guetta concert scheduled today in the city. We at Sunburn tried our very best to make it happen but the authorities understandably are not prepared to take any chances. Hence today’s concert, unfortunately, stands cancelled,”
Even though the organizers want to “reschedule” the concert, there’s no clarity now if they’ll actually be able to. Ouch! Sorry, Bangalore. Better behave next time.
