The 'Corazon' singer reschedules the Italian stop of his '11:11 World Tour', while the gothic metal band pulls out of Asia and Australia concerts that include the Download Festival.

AceShowbiz - Latin superstar Maluma and heavy rockers Lacuna Coil have become the latest artists to cancel concerts in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

Maluma is currently on the road with his "11:11 World Tour", but he will no longer be performing in Milan, Italy on Saturday (March 07), opting to postpone the gig until 31 March, according to Billboard.com.

At present, no other live dates have been scrapped or pushed back.

Meanwhile, Italian goth metal stars Lacuna Coil have pulled a string of upcoming concerts in Asia and Australia, including the Download Festival stops in Melbourne and Sydney on 20 and 21 March, and Canadian rockers Wolf Parade have nixed their booked events across Europe and the U.K.

"It would be both globally irresponsible and potentially risky for the band to carry out the tour at this time," the group shared in a statement posted on Facebook.

"We did not arrive at this decision easily, but in the end, the band and our team all agree it is the right and responsible decision. We hope you understand."

Other musicians to rethink tour dates as the coronavirus continues to spread include Avril Lavigne, BTS (Bangtan Boys), New Order, and Green Day.

The coronavirus has claimed over 3,000 lives so far, with more than 90,000 people infected worldwide.
