Taiwanese pop demigod Jay Chou is cancelling his long-anticipated concert in Hong Kong in December 2019 due to the political upheaval.
The organiser, Best Shine Entertainment, said on Tuesday, Nov. 19, it was regretful to push back Prudential We Do Listening: Jay Chou Carnival World Tour Concert 2019 Hong Kong, citing “uncertainties and possible interruption of public transports”.
The reschedule came just days after the cancellation of Clockenflap, the city’s biggest annual music and arts festival.
Music fans are disappointed.
“This is not an easy decision to make, but after consulting the relevant parties, we see this is the best in the interest of public safety,” Best Shine Entertainment said in a Facebook post.
Chou’s show was scheduled at Hong Kong Disneyland, Lantau Island, from Dec. 6 to 8 and 13 to 15.
Best Shine Entertainment apologised for any inconvenience caused by the postponement.
It said it was working for the rescheduled concert.
Further notice would be announced by the end of January 2020.
Concertgoers could opt for a refund or keep the existing tickets or confirmation email to secure priority for getting tickets for the future show.
