PETALING JAYA: Fans of US singer Bruno Mars may be wondering what will happen to his Kuala Lumpur concert, since it falls on the same day as polling day on May 9.
They will have to wait to find out, with the organiser asking fans to wait for an official statement.
“Thank you for all your messages and calls in regards to the upcoming election and Bruno Mars concert.
“Please stay tuned to PR Worldwide for an official announcement,” the Bruno Mars concert organiser PR Worldwide said on its Facebook page on Tuesday (April 10).
Earlier Tuesday, Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Mohd Hashim Abdullah announced that polling day will fall on May 9.
All 12,000 tickets to the Bruno Mars 24K Magic World Tour in Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil have been sold out.
This is not the first time Malaysian music fans have had to take it on the chin. A concert featuring Italian opera singer-songwriter Andrea Bocelli fell on the same day of GE13 on May 5, 2013.
