Thousands of music lovers in Bahrain have expressed disappointment after the sell-out concert of Saudi star Mohammad Abdoo scheduled for Tuesday evening in Manama was cancelled.

In a brief statement, the organizers of the Spring of Culture Festival said that the open-air concert in a historic fort, considered by most Bahrainis and Gulf nationals as the major event of the month-long celebrations, was cancelled after the star suffered health problems.

No details about the singer’s conditions were provided, but the organizers said that those who had bought tickets will have until April 6 to get their refund.

Abdoo, 70, performed last month in Kuwait City and won special praise for his talent at the Janadirya Festival in the Saudi capital two weeks ago.
