Add Louis Tomlinson to the increasingly long list of artists forced to cancel or postpone shows due to the spreading coronavirus. “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 of his planned gig at Fabrique on March 11.
Tomlinson is on the road promoting his debut album, Walls, with show still slated to take place on March 9 in Barcelona, March 10 in Madrid and March 14 in Stockholm. A growing number of bands and festivals have announced postponements or cancelations as the COVID-19 virus continues to spread across the world; to date it has killed more than 3,200 so far, with more than 95,000 confirmed cases worldwide.
