Band member BamBam says he feels "really sad" about the situation.
K-pop band GOT7 has postponed its Singapore concert, scheduled to take place on Feb 22, due to concerns over the Wuhan coronavirus.
In a statement on its website, concert promoter Live Nation shared, “Due to coronavirus proliferation concerns, we are deeply sorry to announce that GOT7 2020 World Tour ‘Keep Spinning’ in Singapore on 22 February 2020 at Singapore Indoor Stadium has been postponed.”
The statement continued, “The safety of artists, patrons and staff is our top priority and we will continue to act on advice from the authorities on the coronavirus and take precautionary measures in line with prevention efforts.”
There is currently no alternative concert date, and customers have been promised full refunds.
In addition to the postponement of the Singapore concert, GOT7’s Bangkok concerts, slated to take place on Feb 15 and 16, have also been shelved.
In a statement to fans, the group's management company JYP Entertainment said, "We ask for your understanding as this decision has been made in consideration for the safety of the artists and audience... We will announce new dates in future when finalised."
Band member BamBam wrote an apologetic tweet to fans, saying he feels sad and wants everyone to be safe and healthy.
