Angry over cancellation of Akon`s concert, fans protest

Pune: Angry fans, disappointed with the cancellation of popular American songwriter-singer Akon`s concert, protested here tonight, sources close to the artiste said.

Akon was not given permission to perform as the local organizers did not have the necessary foreign artiste performance license, a spokesperson of the event manager said.

Protesting fans created ruckus in the conference hall of a hotel here.

Police, however, said that no official complaint of damage to hotel property has been registered with them and the organizers were refunding the ticket money of the full house.
