The tour is a fully orchestrated, heavy-on-effects production featuring film music composed by Rahman, who won two Academy Awards for his work on the flick “Slumdog Millionaire” – Best Original Music Score and Best Original Song.

But the tour ran into trouble June 19 while setting up for a performance at Michigan’s Pontiac Silverdome when a portion of the stage rigging fell, resulting in damage to equipment and sets as well as several people taken to a hospital for minor injuries.

Now the tour is postponed until the property can be repaired or replaced.

“We are working to recoup all that has been lost (the lights, the sets) which will take us over three weeks to complete,” Rahman wrote on his website. “The vision for the show includes beautiful choreography and circus acts and it feels less than, not to include them. All the world over, the show has received a very positive response from those who have seen it, which makes it absolutely necessary for us to present a complete show and feature all the components that were lost due to the incident.”

Rahman goes on to say the remaining North American dates will be rescheduled, but concerts scheduled for Europe and the U.K. will take place as planned. For information, click here for A.R. Rahman’s website.
