As the video is released, more acts have cancelled dates due to the coronavirus, with Madonna being the latest artist to postpone her live dates in Paris.

A statement on 9 March read: "Following official notification from the Office of the Police this morning prohibiting all events with an audience attendance of over 1000, Live Nation regrets to announce the final two Madame X performances previously re-scheduled to 10-March and 11-March are forced to be cancelled."

SXSW festival was also cancelled over the weekend, with organisers announcing: "We are devastated to share this news with you" and went on: "'The show must go on' is in our DNA, and this is the first time in 34 years that the March event will not take place.

"We are committed to do our part to help protect our staff, attendees, and fellow Austinites.

"We are exploring options to reschedule the event and are working to provide a virtual SXSW online experience as soon as possible for 2020 participants."

Meanwhile, Organisers of the Coachella Arts and Music Festival are thought to be in talks to postpone, amid the US's growing coronavirus fears.

According to Rolling Stone, the event - which is set to take two weeks in April with headliners in Rage Against The Machine, Frank Ocean and Travis Scott - could now be delayed until later this year.

The outlet says that several artists and managers have "been in talks with Goldenvoice" over the last week, while another source claimed the festival “confirmed” postponement with their agency this week.
