Bruno Mars fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
The Grammy winner’s “24K Magic World Tour”, which is set to take place on the same day as Malaysia’s 14th general election (GE14), will go on as usual. This is certainly reassuring considering many concert-goers feared that the concert might be postponed, or worst – cancelled.
The concert organiser PR Worldwide released a statement today (Wednesday, 11th April), saying, “To all Bruno Mars Live in Kuala Lumpur ticket holders, the show is currently scheduled as planned. For event updates, stay tuned to www.prworldwidelive.com“.
Netizens have voiced out that concertgoers can still vote and attend the Mars’ concert on the same day as the music event is held at night. As you may know, Bruno Mars’ 90-minute concert is scheduled to take place at Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil on 9th May (Wednesday) at 8:30pm.
Back in 2013, Italian opera singer-songwriter Andrea Bocelli was scheduled to perform on the same day as polling day. The event at Putra Indoor Stadium went on without a hiccup. Hopefully the same can be said for Mars’ upcoming Malaysian tour.
