"Unfortunately, the show we were going to have on March 7 will be postponed to March 31," Maluma said referring to his Milan concert. In the last weeks in Italy, more than 2,500 cases of Covid-19 were confirmed, in addition to tourist who’ve visited the region.

"We know that Coronavirus is all over Italy, so we will postpone it," he said confident that this disease will soon be mitigated little by little. While the Colombian star is pushing the dates of his Milan show, he clarified that none of his other concerts in Europe would be postponed or canceled.

More artists cancel events due to Coronavirus

Like Maluma, the rock band Green Day chose to cancel their tour in Asia they had for mid-March. Canadian singer Avril Lavigne had her April dates canceled when the initial outbreak of Coronavirus was reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
