In a heartbreaking news for the music lovers, David Guetta’s Bangaluru concert has been cancelled due to the ‘law and order’ situation in the city. The news was confirmed on the official Facebook page of Sunburn festival. The organisers announced that the event that was planned to happen tonight could not go ahead as planned after the authorities advised them against it.

The organisers promised fans that they’ll coordinate with the authorities and artists and will try to reschedule the event. The decision was taken in the aftermath of incidents that happened in Bengaluru on the New Year’s eve. On the eve of New Year, several women were molested on the famous MG road of Bengaluru in the presence of policemen.

The incident was criticised by people all across the country and actor Nana Patekar while speaking at an event also condemned the incident by saying that problem is with the mentality of men and not with the dressing style of girls. He also said that if something like this had happened with his sister or daughter, he would broken their head.

While speaking to ANI, SP Rural Bengaluru said, David Guetta concert not cancelled. Told organisers fix different date due to APMC polls. No law and order problem.
