Franco postpones Soul Fill Up show

FRANCO

In light of the rising global concern over Coronavirus, Rhumba king- Franco, has announced the postponement of his much anticipated ‘Soul Fill Up with Franco’ festival that was slated for April 4th.

The show that was to be held at the National Stadium has since been postponed indefinitely and organisers have promised to provide updates on a suitable date.

In an interview with The Voice Online this afternoon, Franco said: “We have reconsidered our earlier position to go ahead with the show. After consultation with stakeholders we have decided to postpone the show.”

Franco fanatics can however look forward to the show as a new date will be announced. “The show will definitely happen sometime later in the year. Those who have already bought tickets can hold on to them as they will still be valid for use when the show finally happens,” Franco explained.

Earlier the organisers had revealed that they have sold over 50 percent of tickets with a target of 15 000 ticket sales.
