Placido Domingo cancels Havana concert

AAP logoAAP 26/11/2016

Tenor Placido Domingo has had to cancel his concert in the Cuban capital Havana following the death of former president Fidel Castro.

As all public events have been cancelled for nine days of official mourning, the concert cannot take place, the Cuban National Council of Performing Arts said in a statement. A new date has not been set.

Castro, Cuba's former president and revolutionary leader, died on Friday at the age of 90.

The Spanish-born singer told a press conference in Havana on Friday that he had long looked forward to his first-ever performance in Cuba on Saturday.
