As a precautionary measure of the growing worldwide concern of the coronavirus outbreak, Lacuna Coil have regrettably announced their decision to cancel their immediate touring plans.
For now this will only affect their scheduled performances in South East Asia, as they explain in their statement which can be read below.
“We regret to inform our beloved fans of South East Asia that due to circumstances beyond our control we must cancel our upcoming shows in Dubai, Bangkok, Melbourne, Sydney, Tokyo, Osaka, Singapore and Jakarta. Our home region of Lombardia, Italy, is in the midst of a Coronavirus outbreak.
While cancelling is heartbreaking for us, everyone’s health and safety must come first and this includes our fans. We’re confident this emergency will soon be contained and we can get back on the road to you. Thank you for your understanding and stay safe.
Ticket refunds are available for headline shows at points of purchase.”
At the time of writing, it is reported that there are over 90,000 confirmed cases of those infected by the current strain of coronavirus (known as COVID-19) across 75 different countries.
In Lacuna Coil‘s home country of Italy, there have been 2,036 confirmed cases, 52 deaths, and 149 recoveries. In the UK, there are 40 confirmed cases, 0 deaths, and 8 recoveries.
For now, there’s no word on any further show cancellations from the band.
We have compiled a list of other tours and festivals that have been cancelled as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which we intend to update as and when we can.
