Even live concerts are not spared by the COVID-19 pandemic. Sauti Sol know that now.
In the wake of coronavirus, the popular boy band has had to cancel a live performance set for March 28.
This comes in the wake of their Instagram Live performance that was watched by close to 10,000 people.
In a press statement, the all-male star band said,
“Following the cancellation of our UK tour date at Jazz Cafe on the 28th we were optimistic that we could stream to you a live concert on YouTube to make up for the disappointment.”
“Unfortunately, with the rising cases of COVID-19, we must CANCEL the Youtube concert scheduled for this Saturday, March 28.”
The statement continued,
“We have to prioritize the urgent need for our band, friends, families and team’s safety. But hey, we still love you and we wanna make your lockdown and Isolation worthwhile by dropping the second single off our upcoming album /MidnightTrain, next Friday, April 3rd. Tell a friend #StayHome #LockDownNow #TogetherAtHome.”
