The organizers of a show featuring K-pop sensation Psy in Vietnam have suddenly announced an indefinite postponement as the number of tickets sold “did not reach expectation.”
In the announcement released on November 1, the organizers of the Super X Festival committed to reimburse those who had already bought tickets.
“We understand that one of the factors determining a show’s success is the care and support from audiences,” the announcement said. “After considering your responses, we have decided to postpone the Super X Festival.”
“We understand your expectation and will come back with a better and more complete show,” it added.
In mid-October, the Super X Festival made headlines in local media as the organizers promised to bring Psy together with other K-pop names like GOT7, Big Bang, Awesome Baby, and others to Vietnam.
The show, which was expected to be held in Hanoi on November 20 and Ho Chi Minh City one day later, was also scheduled to include performances by Vietnamese singers Son Tung M-TP, Noo Phuoc Thinh, Min St. 319, and Dong Nhi.
Tickets were priced from VND550,000 (US$24.62) to VND3,990,000 ($178.63)
Recent years have seen a number of shows featuring K-pop stars like JYJ, T-ara, and Lee Min-ho canceled because of poor ticket sales.
