The ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ hitmaker apologizes after she is forced to postpone her upcoming show in Hawaii amid concerns over the ongoing coronavirus threats.
AceShowbiz –Mariah Carey has pulled a concert in Hawaii over fears surrounding the spread of the coronavirus.
Since it emerged in China in December 2019, the virus has sparked outbreaks across the world, prompting governments to impose travel and event restrictions and artists including Stormzy, Avril Lavigne, Halsey, and BTS to cancel or postpone gigs.
Mariah is the latest performer to have a date fall victim to the disease announcing she is postponing next Tuesday’s March 10, 2020 performance at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu due to travel restrictions and fears for her fans’ safety.
“Aloha Hawaii!! I’m so so sad to have to announce that I’m postponing my show to November,” she wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. “I was so excited to come back to Hawaii on my ‘anniversary month’ but evolving international travel restrictions force us to consider everyone’s safety and well being.”
Postponing the show until November, she revealed she will instead perform one of her Christmas shows in the Pacific Ocean state.
The pop diva added, “I am SUPER excited to be coming to Honolulu in November and perform my special All I Want for Christmas Is You & Hits extravaganza for the first time ever in Hawaii! I can’t wait to see you! Stay safe!!”
The virus has now infected more than 94,000 across the world, killing more than 3,000, and its spread has put everything from film releases to concerts and sports events in jeopardy due to fears of a global pandemic.
