NEW YORK — Grammy-winning singer Ciara is the latest musician to postpone a concert because of the rapidly spreading coronavirus.

Ciara, who is pregnant, was set to perform in Texas at the grand opening of the new Fort Hood USO on March 19 but announced Saturday that the event is being postponed.

Ciara’s announcement comes a day after the organizers of Austin’s South by Southwest announced they had cancelled the festival. On Thursday, the Ultra electronic dance music festival was officially postponed.

Outside of the United States, several acts have cancelled or postponed live shows including Queen, Adam Lambert, Maluma, Louis Tomlinson, BTS, Green Day, Avril Lavigne and Khalid.
