To the shock of many ATINY, ATEEZ‘s Wooyoung had to bow out of performing during their April 23rd concert in Madrid, Spain due to a back injury.
It has since been confirmed that he will not be participating in the second day of the Madrid concert on April 24th. The two concerts are the first and second stops in the European leg of the group’s 2022 world tour.

Prior to his departure, concertgoers picked up on visual cues from the members that Wooyoung seemed to be in a lot of pain.
I just realized that Yeosang probably realized Wooyoung was stressed or felt a lot of pain so he picked up on it and comforted him just a bit to ease his mind

The remaining seven members continued to give an unforgettable performance, dazzling Madrid ATINYs. While they gave it their all, some things are not the same without the complete team.
After one of their performances, fellow member San looks a bit distraught since he could not do the ending pose without Wooyoung there.
