Russell Brand has announced that tonight’s gig at the Perth Concert Hall has been cancelled due to coronavirus.

Brand tweeted that the cancellation was because of a “confirmed case of coronavirus in someone who attended a recent show.”

A subsequent tweet clarified that the issue directly surrounded the woman who had been tested for COVID-19 but didn’t wait for the results before attending WASO’s Absolute Beethoven concert on Saturday night.  She returned a positive result late on Saturday night.

Brand’s sold-out show was scheduled for 7pm tonight, Monday March 9.
