Lebanese artist Fares Karam has canceled his tour to the US, assuring his fans that he would announce a new date for the tour later.
He said the US tour would have resulted in the cancellation of his other concerts.
“With summer round the corner, tours in the Arab world will be more beneficial. Also, I have committed to the Mawazine festival (in Morocco), which I cannot cancel because I have the tickets,” he said.
He added: “I also did not know who would be present in Vegas, which wasn’t comforting at all. So I decided to cancel the tour.”
Karam is producing a new album for which he collaborated with the late musician Melhem Barakat, Jalal Osama and composer Salim Salameh.
Throughout his career, Karem has participated in a large number of concerts, public celebrations and festivals all over Lebanon. Karam has also toured the Arab world, UK, South America, United States, Europe, Australia and Canada.
