Why were Sidhu Moose Wala's Vancouver concert ticket sales delayed before his death?

New Delhi: 

Ticket sales for Sidhu Moose Wala’s upcoming concert in Vancouver have been delayed for hours due to “security concerns” after he was shot dead in the Mansa district of Punjab. According to the Vancouver Sun, the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) contacted police about the safety of the halls, leading to delays in ticket sales. Back-to-Business tickets showcase the many other Canadian cities that are available for performances this weekend. Tickets for Sidhu Moose Wala’s July 23 performance at Pacific Coliseum were not to go on sale until June 4.

ANI reported that the popular singer-politician was shot down in Mansa district of Punjab. Three people were also injured in the shooting.

According to the PNE’s TicketLeader website, tickets for Sidhu Moose Wala’s concert ranged from $75 to $200. A PNE spokeswoman Laura Ballance said, “We wanted to do a deeper dive into security to ascertain the full scale of public safety risks in consultation with police.”

Laura also said that as part of their security assessment, for any large event, police look at the security plans, depending on which they tell us whether they want two or six officers on-site working with our in-house security team for the event. The concert might have drawn up to 12,000 people to Hastings Park.

The RCMP in Surrey, England, had previously removed him from the 2019 5X Block Party Festival list. A man was also stabbed to death at a concert of Sidhu Moose Wala at Surrey Banquet Hall.

Dr. Ranjeet Rai, the civil surgeon at Mansa Hospital told ANI that the rapper was shot in Mansa district on Sunday evening and was dead when reached the hospital. The incident happened a day after the Punjab police withdrew his security along with that of 424 others. The singer stood up for elections on a Congress ticket from the Mansa assembly constituency. Unfortunately, he faced defeat from AAP’s Dr. Vijay Singla.
