KAT-TUN cancels Bangkok concert

Johnny’s Jimusho announced on Saturday that KAT-TUN’s concert in Bangkok, Thailand, has been indefinitely postponed due to the political unrest in the country.

Recent clashes between the National United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) and the police have been escalating in violence, leading to many injuries and deaths.

KAT-TUN’s upcoming Asia tour was scheduled to start with a concert in Bangkok on July 31, followed by two shows in Seoul on August 6-7 and two shows in Taipei on August 27-28. Although the Bangkok concert has been suspended, the other four concerts will go on as planned.

A similar situation happened in 2006, when an Arashi concert in Bangkok had to be canceled due to the coup d’état in Thailand.
