A scenario that has become familiar. Rapper OrelSan will have to cancel the first dates of his tour. Invited this Tuesday morning in the program “Appoline Matin” broadcast on RMC, Angelo Gopée, director of Live Nation France announced the news which may disappoint the Caen rapper’s fan base.

A decision taken following the latest restrictions set by the government on Monday, December 27. To curb the progress of the new Omicron variant, Prime Minister Jean Castex announced the reinstatement of gauges for indoor and outdoor gatherings as well as the ban on standing concerts.

These new measures should apply from Monday, January 3, and for at least three weeks. The first concerts of the rapper, who achieved historic figures with his latest album Civilisation, were to take place in Caen on January 15, in Rouen on January 19, in Lille on January 20 and in Amiens on January 21.

But for the director of Live Nation France, impossible to maintain the dates. “People will be afraid to buy tickets “, said the CEO of Live Nation France. “We can no longer postpone because the theaters are full, almost until the end of the year 2022. It is impossible to postpone so we will still cancel. OrelSan will be forced to cancel the start of their tour, at least until January 25.
