MONSTA X has once again postponed its US tour and released a new set of concert dates.
On January 21 morning, Starship Entertainment issued a statement regarding the upcoming US tour. According to the notice, the concert tour will be postponed again.
Here is the statement released by Starship Entertainment, MONSTA X’s agency.
Hello, this is Starship Entertainment.
Thank you very much for your interest and support in the '2022 MONSTA X WORLD TOUR IN US/CANADA', which was originally planned for January-February.
We have decided to reschedule the '2022 MONSTA X NO LIMIT US TOUR' to May-June 2022.
We have made this decision with the safety of fans, artists, and staff as our top priority. Previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates. For any canceled shows, those who purchased their tickets through a primary site like Ticketmaster.com will be notified directly regarding refunds.
If you purchased your tickets through a secondary or resale site such as StubHub, SeatGeek, VividSeats, etc., please reach out to them directly regarding your refund.
We're sorry for the inconvenience and ask for your generous understanding. We look forward to '2022 MONSTA X NO LIMIT US TOUR' and can't wait to share a wonderful performance. Thank you.
Fans have different reactions to this. Some are irritated at how late the agency has announced the concert postponement, especially that it’s already January 2022, and the members were expected to start their tour next week.
Other fans are entirely relieved that the members will stay in South Korea as there has been another COVID-19 variant that can put their safety at risk.
MONSTA X to proceed with the US tour with new dates
Instead of the January-February 2022 tour dates, MONSTA X will visit the United States in May and June 2022.
Starship Entertainment also stated their commitment to putting the health and safety of their artists and fans first, hence the decision to move the concert to a later date.
The tour was obviously postponed due to the global spread of the Omicron mutation virus (COVID-19 variant). And, since they prioritize the health and safety of the fans, artists, and staff, they have had to make a difficult decision.
The US tour was originally scheduled to begin in 2020. The performance dates were postponed to January-February 2022 after moving back to April-May 2021.
Now, new dates were announced, which led fans to wait a bit longer for the powerhouse group to visit the country.
MONSTA X will now kick off their US tour starting in New York on May 21. This will be followed by a performance on Fairfax on May 24, Detroit on May 26, Chicago on May 28, Sunrise on June 1, Atlanta on June 4, Fort Worth on June 6, and Phoenix on June 8. The tour will conclude on June 11 in Los Angeles.
