Stormzy cancels sold out tour dates over Coronavirus fears

Stormzy has confirmed he is cancelling his tour around Asia and rescheduling for a later date after posting to his fans on social media.

He was scheduled to travel around Malaysia, Singapore, China, Japan and South Korea in March as part of his Heavy Is The Head Tour, but has announced that all the dates will be rescheduled.

Three of the dates in Malaysia, Singapore and China were sold out, while tickets for other shows were still available.

He wrote: "I was seriously looking forward to bringing the #HITH World tour to Asia and playing some epic sold out shows but due to the ongoing health and travel concerns surrounding the Coronavirus, I’m regrettably having to reschedule this leg of the Tour.

"Information regarding the rescheduled dates will follow in due course. Please contact your local ticket vendor for any further queries. I promise I'll be back."

The coronavirus outbreak originated in China and has spread to several countries around the world, including Australia, France and Italy.

The first London case of the virus was confirmed this week after a Chinese national was diagnosed.

Stormzy is also set to take a break from the tour to return to the UK to perform at the Brit Awards on Tuesday, where he is nominated for British album and British male.
