Gims, Ninho … Concerts canceled, maintained or threatened because of the Coronavirus



The government has announced a ban on gatherings of more than 5,000 people in confined spaces, which has a strong impact on the holding of certain concerts.

[Mis à jour le 03 mars 2020 à 18h26] “All the gatherings of more than 5,000 people in confined spaces will be canceled”, can be read on the French government website. As a security measure, in this epidemic context linked to the coronavirus, several events have been canceled everywhere in France, notably the Paris half-marathon or the Annecy Carnival in early March. But this is also the case for several concerts, already canceled or threatened. Sunday March 1, at the AccorHotels Arena was to be held the Just Debout dance competition, which has been postponed, as announced in the Parisian hall on social networks. The tour of Gims it was postponed, as were several concerts by rapper Ninho and Vitaa and Slimane scheduled for March.

In the coming weeks, other concerts and events may be canceled after government measures to prevent the spread of the virus. Especially since the theaters fear the lowering by the authorities of 5,000 people in the coming days depending on the evolution of the situation. According to several organizers, some ticket offices will close before the limit set by the government, in order to maintain certain dates. Let us take stock of the concerts canceled and maintained (subject to new government measures):

  • Paris Manga & Sci-Fi Show : the fair which was to open at the Paris Exhibition Center, Porte de Versailles, has been canceled. It was to bring together K-pop concerts and karaoke on March 7 and 8.
  • Brittany Night : the meeting of Breton music, which was to be held on Saturday March 7 at Paris La Défense Arena, has just been canceled, announces the room on social networks.
  • Gims : the whole first part of the Gims tour, which was due to start on March 6 at the Zénith in Rouen, has just been postponed, announced the producers of the show. “It is a real heartbreaker but our sense of responsibility obliges us to take no risk with the health of all those who make the success of our profession, artists, audiences and technicians (…) It is why we decided with the close collaboration of the artist and his management, to make the party beautiful, to postpone for a few weeks, the magnificent GIMS DECENNIE TOUR “, can we read in the press release from Cheyenne Production. Tickets remain valid for new dates.
  • Vitaa and Slimane : the first concert of their tour, “Versus Tour”, scheduled for Saturday March 7 in Beauvais in Oise, one of the main foci of coronavirus, has been cancelled. It will be postponed to a later date. The two artists say they are “disgusted” on social networks.
  • Ninho : the rapper has just announced on social networks that his two concerts planned for March, 10 at the Zenith in Lille and 12 at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, are postponed to dates which will be announced shortly.
  • Matt Pokora : the singer, whose several concerts are threatened by security measures linked to the Coronavirus, will not perform at the Galaxie d’Amnéville as planned, Friday March 6. The prefecture of Moselle decided to reschedule the event which was to bring together more than 6,500 spectators. The other dates of his “Pyramid Tour” are pending.

The concerts held:

  • Caravan Palace : the group must perform at the Zenith in Paris, Porte de La Villette, Saturday March 7.
  • Papa Roach + Hollywood Undead : the two groups are expected on Friday March 13 at the Zénith in Paris.
  • Claudio Capéo : the singer must perform on Saturday March 14 at the Zenith in Paris.
  • Jean-Louis Aubert, Maxime Le Forestier, Christophe Maé, Pink Floyd : the configuration of these concerts is planned for a tonnage below 5,000 people, these dates are therefore maintained.
  • James Blunt : the singer’s concerts in Marseille, Lyon and Nantes on March 2, 3 and 4 are maintained.
  • The musical Seine : the Boulogne-Billancourt concert hall announced on social networks that all of its events were being held.

On social networks, several artists have worried about the possible cancellation of their concerts, notably Roméo Elvis (March 26 at the sold-out AccorHotels Arena) or M Pokora (March 14). “Friends like you I have just learned of the surprising decision of the ministry to cancel the gatherings of more than 5000 people until further notice … we will know more at the beginning of the week I will keep you posted concerning the tour supposed to resume professional weekend … “, wrote the latter on Twitter, ironically on the gauge imposed by the government:” more than 5,000 people is risky, but 4,500 we are good “.

In the coming weeks, several events could exceed the gauge in question, in particular at the AccorHotels Arena where Ninho must occur on March 12, Tryo on March 13, M Pokora, precisely, on March 14. In France, a total of 80 covered rooms can hold more than 5,000 spectators.
