It appears that J Balvin’s concert at the Abu Dhabi Showdown Week is not going ahead. An SMS was sent by Virgin Radio Dubai to its competition winners earlier today about the gig that was set to take place this Thursday. The message reads:

“We have been informed by the organizers of Abu Dhabi Showdown Week that the J Balvin concert at The Arena has officially been cancelled. Apologies to our winners. We are yet to receive any information if there will be any substitute but will keep you posted if there is.”
