KAT-TUN’s 2011 concerts postponed or cancelled

This year’s KAT-TUN summer concert tour has been cancelled, it was revealed on May 29, reports Daily Sports Online and Chunichi Sports.

 

The tour was meant to start in July, but the 3/11 Tohoku earthquake lead to a number of changes which have made a summer start impossible.  It has been reported the venue for the group’s planned outdoor concert at Yokohama’s Higashi-ougishima Higashi park is also an emergency evacuation area.  To make everyone’s safety a priority, the concert has been cancelled.

 

It was also revealed the group’s 5-Dome concert tour would be postponed until 2012.  This is because of the Tohoku earthquake delayed the start of the professional baseball season, making baseball matches clash with concerts which were planned to be performed at the same venues.

 

The group did not say they were giving up though.

“We think about performing concerts all the time,” Kazuya Kamenashi said.

 

In the mean time, it has been reported plans are being drawn up for a possible fan meeting event around autumn to make up for the time loss.
