With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic rapidly spreading several artists have been cancelling their overseas tours and appearances, now including the “Walls” singer Louis Tomlinson. Tomlinson canceled his show in Milan due to coronavirus concerns as the pandemic worsens. The show was planned for March 11 at Fabrique in Milan.
“Following the decree from the President of the Council of Ministers on 4th March my headline show in Milan next week will now not go ahead,” Tomlinson wrote in a Tweet announcing the cancellation.
Tomlinson continued to say, “I was really excited to bring the Walls Tour to Italy but the health and safety of my fans is more important than anything else. Hold on to your tickets. Further information will be available from your ticket seller in the next few days,” signed Louis.
