David Guetta fans go into meltdown after last-minute concert cancellation in Bangalore

Written by  Sohini Mitter

Indian music fans are angry as DJ David Guetta's concert in Bangalore has been called off at the eleventh hour. 

The organizers have cited security concerns following an incident on New Year's Eve in the city where many women were harassed.

The proceeds of the gig #Guetta4Good, part of the ongoing Sunburn Music Festival, were to go to a charity that works with underprivileged children.

Merely a few hours before the scheduled time, the festival organizers released a statement via a tweet, which was later deleted.

The announcement came as a surprise, since the build-up to the event had been palpable. Even half a day ago.
