The upcoming concert of South Korean boyband Stray Kids in Jakarta has been postponed over concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The group was initially slated to perform at Istora Senayan, Central Jakarta, on Aug. 15 as part of its second concert tour, District 9: Unlock World Tour.
“Even though we have been looking for ways to proceed with the concert, due to the global proliferation of COVID-19, it is difficult to pursue the concert any further. We ask for your understanding as this decision has been made in consideration for the safety of the artists as well as audiences, and we sincerely apologize to all fans who [looked forward to] the concert," Stray Kids management JYP Entertainment said in a statement shared by promoter Mecima Pro on social media.
Prior to the pandemic, Stray Kids had visited several cities in the United States, including New York, Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles, (https://www.instagram.com/p/B8svOKtlWAJ/) as part of the tour in January and February.
Other than Indonesia, the group also postponed its shows in Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Japan and several European countries.
Established in 2017, Stray Kids consists of members Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, HAN, Felix, Seungmin and I.N. (wir/kes)
