Stormzy has rescheduled part of his world tour due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The grime star said he would “regrettably” have to move a number of Asia gigs which were scheduled for March as part of his Heavy is the Head tour.

Writing on Twitter, he said: “I was seriously looking forward to bringing the #HITH World tour to Asia and playing some epic sold out shows but due to the ongoing health and travel concerns surrounding the Coronavirus, I’m regrettably having to reschedule this leg of the Tour.”

“I promise I’ll be back,” he added.

The affected shows are in Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, China and South Korea.

The announcement comes as over 1,300 people are confirmed to have died from COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, according to the Johns Hopkins Centre for Systems Science and Engineering.

The majority of the deaths are concentrated in mainland China, although there has also been one death in the Philippines, another in Japan and one person has died in Hong Kong.
