Burna Boy was due to perform live in South Africa this weekend but the concert was postponed. Here’s the new concert date and ticket sales update.
Burna Boy live in South Africa: Why was the concert postponed?
The decision to postpone the concert comes amid reports of sound-related challenges.
The source revealed that the primary issue revolved around the sound provider, one of the largest in Africa, facing issues that necessitated their removal.
Burna Boy took the step of firing them on Monday night (18 September 2023), prompting the organisers to enlist the services of another sound company from the North West region.
However, this replacement company lacked the necessary capacity to handle the event.
Latest updates on Burna Boy ticket sales
In addition to sound-related issues, ticket sales appear to have presented challenges. Reports surfaced of suite tickets being discounted on certain online platforms last week.
FNB Stadium confirmed the concert’s postponement but stated that the event organisers would officially communicate this decision during the course of Tuesday.
The public relations company responsible for the concert expressed unawareness of the postponement and announced their intention to convene a meeting to gather further information.
Currently, there is uncertainty regarding the procedures ticket holders should follow to secure their purchase or obtain a refund.
A message on TicketPro on Tuesday stated:
“This event has been temporarily postponed until further notice.”
