Hong Kong singer-actress Miriam Yeung’s upcoming concert in Singapore has been postponed due to travel restrictions in China.

Concert promoter Live Nation said in a statement on Tuesday (28 January) that refunds would be provided for those who had bought tickets to the concert, priced from S$108 to S$228. The show was originally scheduled on 8 February at Singapore Indoor Stadium. The organisers did not provide a new date for the concert.

In its statement posted on ticketing website APACTix, Live Nation said:

All concert production equipment and machinery were to be freighted in from China and set up by the Chinese team. Due to the current freight and travel conditions in China, it is not possible to complete the staging according to production requirements.

It is with deep regret that ‘MY BEAUTIFUL LIVE Miriam Yeung World Tour – Singapore’, originally scheduled on 08 February 2020 at Singapore Indoor Stadium, will be postponed.

Customers who had purchased tickets can get full refunds based on their mode of payment. Those who paid by credit card would have their refund automatically credited to the same credit card used for the transaction. Live Nation said the credit card refund would take 14 business days to be processed.

Customers who paid by cash or NETS are required to go to the Singapore Sports Hub box office at Kallang Wave Mall with their physical tickets and photo ID from 30 January to 9 February in order to receive a cash refund. Operating hours are from Monday to Saturday, 10am to 8pm.

Yeung’s current concert tour began in Guangzhou and has since travelled to Zhuhai, Wuhan, Shenzhen, Beijing, Chengdu, Melbourne, Sydney, and Toronto. She was supposed to perform her hit songs from the last two decades at her concert in Singapore.

Travel restrictions have been imposed on 15 Chinese cities amid the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak. Local healthcare authorities are racing to contain the disease that has infected thousands and caused 106 deaths in China so far.

Singapore has confirmed seven imported cases of the Wuhan virus as of Tuesday and imposed travel curbs for new visitors who had visited Hubei in the last 14 days.

Hong Kong singers Andy Lau and Leon Lai have also cancelled their concerts in Hong Kong and Macau respectively due to the outbreak.
