YUNGBLUD joins list of artists canceling Asia shows due to coronavirus
Many artists have already canceled their upcoming shows in Asian including Green Day and Avril Lavigne and AltPress reported just yesterday that the Chinese theatrical release of Mulan has been postponed by Disney as well.
Now, YUNGBLUD has canceled his shows as well. Recently, we reported the good news of YUNGBLUD being back in the studio and recording a "sad version" of "I Think I'm OKAY" with Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker.
YUNGBLUD took to Instagram to announce the cancelation fo his Asian shows that were set to take place in Hong Kong, Japan, The Philippines South Korea and Singapore starting next week.
"Yo Asia what's going on? It's YUNGBLUD. How are you," YUNGBLUD begins." “A bit of bad news. I’m going to have to cancel this Asia tour because we’ve been advised about the travel risks in terms of the coronavirus. At first I was going to say, ‘Fuck it’ and come, but we have been advised again to seriously not."
“I just wanted to send a message just to say I’m really thinking about you all a lot and I want to send all my love and I hope everyone is safe, and I hope everyone is trying to be as positive as they can. I love you so much. I’ll be back so soon. I promise, I swear to god. I’m going to get out there as soon as I can. I’ll see you soon, I love you, look after each other, stay safe.”A compilation of the videos can be seen in the tweet below.
