Rapper, singer/songwriter, and record producer, Post Malone, has postponed his show at MGM Grand scheduled to take place this Saturday, according to ticketing website AXS. The show was postponed due to coronavirus concerns.
The show was close to being sold out, with only single tickets left on Friday before the announcement was made.
AXS advised ticket-holders to hold onto their tickets since they can be used for a future, to-be-determined date:
“At this time, we don’t have information on a new date. Hold onto your tickets’ there is nothing you need to do and they will still be valid for the rescheduled date.”
While the Post Malone show has been canceled, the show for American rock band 311, which is taking place across the street at Park MGM, is still on for their Friday set. That show is completed sold out.
The last time Post Malone performed in Vegas was last September, for the annual Life is Beautiful festival downtown.
Post Malone’s scheduled March 19 concert at the Chase Center in San Francisco is also being listed as “canceled or postponed — TBD,” in a statement from the venue.
Due to coronavirus concerns, a number of events at Chase Center have been affected.
“We will continue to monitor this evolving situation closely to determine next steps for future games and events. We appreciate the understanding and patience of our fans, guests, and partners during this unprecedented time,” a statement from the venue read.
