Dear Friends,

After taking the entire country by storm in his United States debut, receiving critical acclaim, performing at audience demanded encore performances, and just hours before he was to board a flight from LA to Chicago, Mohsen Namjoo was checked into the emergency room.
Details of this incredible artist’s health are still unknown to Pasfarda, and our thoughts are with him for a speedy recovery.

In light of these circumstances, Mr. Namjoo’s Chicago concert and the VIP reception hosted by Pasfarda, both set to take place tomorrow night, September 23rd, have been postponed. A new concert and reception date will be announced pending good news from the artist’s doctors.

We thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.
