And they likely will not be the last to do so.
“We have unfortunately made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming shows in Asia due to the health + travel concerns with coronavirus,” Green Day tweeted Thursday night. “We know it sucks, as we were looking forward to seeing you all, but hold on to your tickets we’ll be announcing the new dates very soon.”
The band had plans in March to perform in Bangkok, Manila, Seoul and Osaka, along with other cities.
As of Friday, Green Day’s website indicated the tour would resume in May with a show in Moscow.
And on Friday morning, the band canceled four concerts in Seoul that had been scheduled for April, saying it was “impossible at this time to predict the scale of the outbreak” and citing the “increasing uncertainty about the cross-border movement of concert staff and equipment.”
Big Hit Entertainment had expected more than 200,000 people to attend the shows.
BTS said that ticket purchasers will receive a full refund.
Up in the air
Cancellations to this point have largely focused on concerts taking place in Asia, but with confirmed coronavirus cases now in every continent except Antarctica, more live entertainment events will likely be impacted.
Alanis Morissette is scheduled to take her “Jagged Little Pill” 25th Anniversary tour to Japan and the Philippines in early April.
Singer Tori Kelly also has tour stops in the Philippines, South Korea and Japan scheduled in April.
Looking further out, singer Billie Eilish has tour dates scheduled in August that would take her to Seoul, Shanghai, Taipei, Hong Kong and Tokyo, to name a few.
The outbreak has reached the “highest level” of risk for the world, the World Health Organization announced on Friday.
