MONSTA X has recently announced a second postponement of their U.S. and Canada tour due to the continuous threat of COVID-19.
Last year, MONSTA X rescheduled their “2020 MONSTA X World Tour in US/Canada” due to the pandemic as well. The tour was originally scheduled for June and July of 2020 but was pushed back to April and May of 2021.
Several hours ago, Starship Entertainment (on the Official MONSTA X Twitter account) announced that they would be postponing MONSTA X’s tour again, with more details about the new schedule to come later. As the spread of COVID-19 is still a global issue, it has been assumed by fans that the tour will take place at either the end of the year or next year.
Starship Entertainment’s English statement states:
Thank you very much for your interest and support in “2021 MONSTA X World Tour in US/Canada.” We regret to announce that “2021 MONSTA X World Tour in US/Canada” originally scheduled for April-May 2021 is being rescheduled due to a rise in the number of COVID-19 confirmed cases around the world.
