K-Pop girl group, TWICE, is set to kick off their world tour starting with three offline concerts in Seoul, South Korea at the Olympic Park KSPO Dome, but with the unfortunate rising cases in the country, the group has decided to cancel one of the shows. JYP Entertainment released the following statement:
“Hello, this is JYPE.
As stricter social distancing guidelines are being implemented due to the continuing rise of COVID-19 cases, we have decided to cancel one of TWICE’s offline concerts, “TWICE 4TH WORLD TOUR ‘III’,” that had been scheduled for December 24.
JYPE had been preparing for the offline concerts while following the social distancing guidelines put in place by the disease control authorities and the relevant government authorities and ensuring the safety of the artists and audience members. However, the stricter social distancing guidelines means that the venue now has limited operating hours, so we have canceled the concert scheduled for December 24. The December 25 and 26 offline concerts will still take place, as well as the December 26 Beyond LIVE online concert.
We will reveal more details later about the cancellation and refund procedures for the canceled offline concert. We will do our best so that the audience is refunded as quickly as possible.
We sincerely apologize for those who had looked forward to the concert.“
TWICE is still on for the rest of the tour stops, which include: Los Angeles, Oakland, Dallas, Atlanta, and New York, starting in February 2022. Stay tuned for more details!
