With the novel coronavirus infecting its 18th person in Malaysia today, two upcoming concerts in the capital city have been postponed.
K-pop band Super Junior will postpone its March 1st concert to another unspecified date.
Organiser Star Planet said in a press statement the move was made “in view of protecting the health and safety of the artistes, performers, patrons and staff.”
“This decision has been reached in response to the health authorities’ worldwide efforts in taking preventive measures to curb and contain the escalating coronavirus epidemic.”
“The decision is also made due to the travel restrictions put in place which have caused unforeseen impacts on global logistics affecting the equipment shipping process.”
Star Planet assured Super Junior fans who have already purchased their tickets that they remain valid for the new date. They can also opt for a refund. Call Star Planet at +603 9223 3667 or visit starplanet.com.my.

Tickets, which have been purchased through Ticketcharge, will remain valid for the new date.
“We understand that some fans may not be able to make the new date and these fans who have purchased their tickets through Ticketcharge may have their tickets refunded from Feb 13 to Feb 27, ” said a representative from organiser GHY Culture & Media in a press statement.
