Harrdy Sandhu reschedules Gurugram show; here's why
PTC News Desk: Singer Harrdy Sandhu has rescheduled his upcoming show in Gurugram and will announce the new dates soon.
The singer took the decision in the wake of "rising pollution levels", saying the safety of fans is his "top priority".
The Punjabi singer was scheduled to begin his first all-India tour, titled 'In My Feelings,' on November 18 from Delhi-NCR.
Sandhu, known for songs such as "Bijlee Bijlee," "Kya Baat Ay," and "Naah," said the organisers of the Gurugram show will announce the new date soon.
"It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that our upcoming show in Gurgaon (now Gurugram) on November 18 will have to be rescheduled. The rising pollution levels and government regulations aimed at curbing them have made it essential for us to prioritize safety," he wrote on his Instagram Stories on Tuesday.
"I assure everyone that we are working on finding a new date that works for everyone. Your safety is my top priority, and I can't wait to share the stage with you when the conditions are right."
The poisonous haze that blanketed Delhi thickened on Wednesday, with air quality nearing "severe" due to unfavourable weather conditions. At 8 a.m., the national capital's Air Quality Index (AQI) was 392. On Tuesday, the 24-hour average AQI was 397, as measured at 4 p.m. every day.
Gurugram's air quality was also very poor, with an AQI of 322.
