A R Rahman has postponed his North America tour, due to the Covid-19 pandemic that is making its presence felt across the world.

He said in a post, “There is nothing more important to me than sharing my music with my loyal fans throughout the world. Unfortunately, this is a moment when we should be in our homes with our families”

“So with the health and welfare of you, my fans, my family & my band, I am postponing the April & May North American tour until next year,” the Oscar-Grammy winner said further.

The Mozart of Madras added: “At that time we can come together to once again share our music and community. I will be sure to update you over time, and I am praying for everyone’s health and safety. #ARRLive #NorthAmericaTour2020.”
