The Asia tour of ONE OK ROCK has been postponed amid concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Japanese rock band announced on Tuesday, March 17.

ONE OK ROCK told their fans on Instagram: "After much consideration due to the current situation involving the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we regretfully announce the postponement of the Tour.

"We sincerely apologize to all fans looking forward to the Tour however as we consider the safety of our fans and all related parties involved to be of the utmost importance and after much discussions with organizers, we have sadly reached this decision."

 

 

The dates affected are the following: April 25 in Bangkok; April 30 in Seoul; May 2 in Manila; May 9 in Singapore; May 22 in Hong Kong; May 30 in Jakarta; June 4, 6, and 7 in Taipei.

ONE OK ROCK also postponed their upcoming shows in Japan, which was to be held in Nagoya on March 31 and April 1.

The four-member band said they are currently working on new dates for both the Nagoya show and the Asia tour, "however, if adjustment cannot be made due to conflicting venue schedules, the performance may have to be relocated to a different venue or cancelled entirely."

ONE OK ROCK previously performed in the Philippines last January 2018.

ONE OK ROCK, which is a play on the Japanese pronunciation of "one o'clock," is behind the hits "The Beginning", "Mighty Long Fall", and "Stand Out Fit In".
