Punjab’s popular singer Gurdas Maan’s ‘Akhiyan Udeek Diyan’ Canada tour has been postponed due to the ongoing diplomatic tensions between India and Canada. Gurjit Bal Productions, the promoter of the tour, announced the postponement on its social media account.
The tour was scheduled to take place from October 22 to 31, with shows in Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, and Winnipeg. However, the promoter has decided to postpone the shows indefinitely in light of the current situation.
“We understand that this news is very disappointing for those who wished to attend, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused,” the promoter said in a statement. “After careful consideration of the unforeseen circumstances, we have decided that postponing the shows is the most responsible and necessary step at this time.”
The promoter added that it will take the necessary steps to refund any registration fees paid or tickets purchased for the shows. Refund information will be shared with ticket holders directly via email, website, or other methods of their choice.
“New dates will be announced soon,” the promoter said. “Thank you very much for your support.”
The postponement of Gurdas Maan’s Canada tour is a significant setback for the Punjabi music industry. Maan is one of the most popular Punjabi singers in the world, and his tours are always highly anticipated. However, the promoter’s decision to postpone the tour is understandable, given the current diplomatic tensions between India and Canada.
The postponement of the tour is also a reminder of the importance of diplomacy. When relations between two countries are strained, it can have a negative impact on cultural and economic ties. It is hoped that the diplomatic tensions between India and Canada will be resolved soon, so that Gurdas Maan and other artists can once again perform in Canada without any hindrance.
