According to latest news, It is stated that the concert will be performed on Monday.
"Jinxed." That was overwhelming opinion of fans of Swedish electronic dance super-group Swedish House Mafia after their concert had to be cancelled for the second time in India in less than three months.
The concert, scheduled in Bangalore for Sunday was put off as the plane carrying the group from Jakarta to India was damaged following a storm and floods there, and the members were unable to leave, a note on the SHM Facebook page said.
The SHM concert in Mumbai on November 17 was postponed on account of Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray's death.
Organisers of the event, Sunburn Arena, said they were working to reschedule the Bangalore show, part of the band's farewell tour, for Monday, January 21. This has not yet been confirmed.
Ticket-holders were promised a refund if the concert was cancelled.
But this came as small consolation to fans, who took to social media sites to express their disappointment even as rumours about the postponement were put to rest with the group's announcement.
"We've been looking forward to the show since September, when it was initially announced," said Ashmita Mangharam, a class 12 student in Bangalore. She says she lost about Rs. 9,000 making the trip for the cancelled concert in Mumbai last year, with 15 other friends.
Dhiren Raghu, an engineering student at R.V. College too says he spent Rs. 15,000 on his savings to make the trip to Mumbai last year, and was excited that the group whom he had followed for years was finally coming to Bangalore. "I hope the concert happens on Monday," he said.
Questions to the organisers on the number of tickets sold and the security measures in place to control crowds, were not answered at the time of writing. At least 25,000 people were expected to attend the concert in Mumbai and a similar number in Bangalore.
The rescheduled show in Mumbai will go on as announced on Tuesday, organisers added.
