In a disappointment for Bryan Adams' fans, the Canadian rock star's much-awaited concert in Delhi today was cancelled after police refused permission for it over security concerns.

The sold-out concert, which was scheduled for this evening, was called off after the Delhi police said the location for the show in the NSIC exhibition grounds in Okhla industrial area of south east Delhi was not suitable for it. “Police have cancelled the New Delhi concert tonight due to public safety. There are so many people than they expected coming to the show, that they are concerned about security,” tweeted Adams. The organisers said that unexpected rains coupled with the overwhelming public response for the show had made the venue “unsafe”.

However, they said that the singer was keen to perform in New Delhi and a new date and venue was being worked out.

The 52-year-old singer has already performed in Bangalore and Mumbai.

Adams is also scheduled to hold a concert in Hyderabad tomorrow before he flies to Dhaka and then Kathmandu.

According to a senior police official, the objection was mainly due to the organisers selling more tickets than the capacity of the ground which can cater to only 6,000 people at a time.
