NYE molestation fallout: David Guetta’s Bengaluru concert cancelled
French DJ David Guetta’s Sunburn ‘Guetta 4 Good’, which was scheduled to take place on Thursday in Bengaluru, has been cancelled at the eleventh hour due to “law and order situation”, a fallout of the molestation incident in Bengaluru on New Year’s Eve.
Guetta was supposed to kick off his four-city tour today, starting from Bengaluru, followed by Mumbai, Hyderabad and New Delhi.
Sunburn Festival posted on Facebook: “Due to the present law & order situation in #Bengaluru following the events that happened around New Year’s Eve, the authorities have recommended against holding the concert scheduled today with David Guetta.
“We as #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.
“We shall try to reschedule the concert subject to approval from the artist & the authorities. We will be back with more information as soon as possible.
“@Bookmyshow will be in touch with all ticket holders for the next steps.
“Please let your friends know. Other shows are as per schedule”.
David Guetta and Robin Schulz, a German DJ, were supposed to perform at the Embassy International Riding School, Bengaluru on Thursday. However, Schulz failed to get a visa to India as he did not have the “Yellow Vaccine” paperwork.
“Unfortunately, I had travelled all the way from my shows in Brazil and I didn’t have the ‘Yellow Vaccine’ paperwork, which is required to be allowed into the country after spending time in Brazil. Without this information, I was refused entry and sent home again. My apologies to all my fans hoping to see me perform this weekend. I look forward to partying with you in India again soon! Sorry so much again and lots of Love,” he had said.
