The most anticipated A R Rahman Jai Ho World Tour stops in Detroit and Toronto are postponed due to an unfortunate accident.
The Detroit show saw an unforeseeable accident during the set up hours. While this accident was significant, all technical crew who were on duty at that time are safe. Some suffered minor injuries. A R Rahman announced today that he was very happy to know that his crew was safe and he attributed that to the grace of the almightly.
In light of this accident, AR Rahman and his team have decided to reschedule the Detroit and Toronto shows for a future date. They further mentioned that this rescheduling is to ensure that they deliver the best they can during these performances while ensuring that the 'family' of technical staff who have been working with them are able to perform their duties. These technicians are the best in their field and their work cannot be replaced.

All fans are being assured by Rapport Productions and the local promoters, Altaf Hussain and NK Production Consultants and Mega Concert Promotions, that all tickets bought todate will be honoured for the future date which is to be announced shortly.
