In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, several big-ticket musical acts have pulled their Asia shows. This includes Stormzy, BTS, Green Day and Mabel.

Stormzy has postponed the Asian leg of his Heavy Is the Head world tour. The South London rapper wrote on Twitter, “I was seriously looking forward to bringing the #HITH world tour to Asia and playing some epic sold-out shows but due to the ongoing health and travel concerns surrounding the coronavirus, I’m regrettably having to reschedule this leg of the tour.”

As for BTS, the K-pop group posted a cancellation guide for their Map of the Soul tour on a platform called Weverse, citing "the health and safety of hundreds of thousands of guests as well as our artists."

Other artists who have postponed their Asian tour dates are British pop sensation Mabel and punk band Green Day. As the coronavirus outbreak worsens and spreads to more countries, it's unclear how many more international tour dates will need to be scrapped.
