TOKYO (Reuters) - Bob Dylan’s upcoming concerts in Japan have been canceled because of the coronavirus outbreak, the tour organizer said on Friday.

The American singer-songwriter was due to perform 15 concerts in Tokyo and Osaka in April.

“We are so sorry to cancel the shows, but in the interest of public health and safety, we are left with no alternative,” Udo Artists said on its website.
