Udit Narayan and Aditya’s first live concert in Delhi postponed due to floods

Aditya Narayan and his father, veteran singer Udit Narayan, were set to have their inaugural LIVE concert in Delhi on July 23. Unfortunately, the event has been postponed due to floods in the area. The father-son duo’s performance in the national capital will now take place in September, although the precise date remains undisclosed at this time. Fans will have to wait a bit longer to witness the musical magic of the Narayan duo, as they eagerly anticipate the rescheduled concert in the coming months.

Aditya Narayan expressed that the safety of the audience is of paramount importance, and he considers it the top priority. According to a news report, the concert venue chosen for the performance of Aditya and Udit Narayan was in close proximity to the Yamuna River. However, due to the prevailing waterlogging and flood-like conditions in the national capital, they made the responsible decision to postpone the event.

Understanding the potential risks posed by the adverse weather conditions and the safety concerns it may raise for the audience, the father-son duo opted to reschedule the concert. By prioritizing the well-being of their fans and the attendees, Aditya and Udit Narayan displayed their commitment to ensuring a secure and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Aditya expressed his ‘disappointment’ as it was their first time preparing to perform live in the national capital.  Speaking to Hindustan Times he said, “Had it been a small show”.“But the venue we were supposed to perform at accommodates approximately five thousand people. Also, this venue is very near to Yamuna. So we could not risk the safety of our audience,”

He further stated, “Nobody is more disappointed than us but we have to ensure hundred percent safety of our audience. Also, because it’s the first concert with my father, I want to make sure that people not only show up in good numbers but enjoy throughly. Because they are paying their hard-earned money to buy tickets, I would not want them to go back disappointed.”

Aditya assures that once the situation improves, he and his father will return to Delhi to perform with full enthusiasm. Meanwhile, he urges people to stay safe and acknowledges the areas facing the challenges of adverse weather. He compassionately says, “My heart goes out to people, and I request everyone to stay at home as much as possible and be safe.”

On July 19, 2023, the water level of the Yamuna River in Delhi once again surpassed the danger mark, within less than 12 hours of receding below the threshold. This occurrence was a result of ongoing rains in the national capital and the upper regions of the river.
