Kitaro Concerts in Tehran Cancelled

Concerts scheduled in Tehran for acclaimed Japanese musician and composer Masanori Takahashi, better known by his nickname Kitaro, have been cancelled. 
Kitaro, 65, was initially supposed to perform for three nights at the Ministry of Interior Auditorium from May 6-8. But due to delays in issuing visas for his six American band members, the performance was postponed to May 12, 13 and 17, Mehr News Agency reported on its Persian website. 
However, due to shortage of time for organizing the event, and also the band members’ concerns about possible problems when they return to the US, organizers decided to cancel the event. 
According to Ali Torabi, director general of Culture Ministry’s Music Office, Kitaro’s concert had all the required permits. “But after the permits were issued, the band and its organizers decided to postpone the concert for another time due to the delay in the visas and the little time left for selling the tickets,” Torabi said.
