From JYJ publicist, Melissa Lam -For Immediate release – Reasons for changes made to US stops and apology.
20th October, 5.31pm, SGT
First of all, we would like to start this mail with an apology to the change in US stops and all prior travel arrangements made to former locations.
We decided to replace two stops on the original schedule as:
1. It is too punishing on the members physically and mentally to do the back to back gigs and specifically for the US leg, we are taking into consideration possible jet lag.
2. The change was made in lieu of tremendous feedback received from Japanese fans who have asked if we could put one stop in Hawaii for them since Japan was not included in this tour.
3. We wanted to make sure that all JYJ fans will be able to get a ticket to the showcases and hence we told promoters that we need a minimum of a 5000 pax venue for each stop. Due to constraints at the former locations, this can only be accomplished with the new tour stops added. (with the exception of NYC which needed to be locked in as press activities for the stop has been confirmed).
We apologize once again for the inconveniences caused and ask for your understanding. It is the best solution we can come up with to meet expectations on every level.
*Official ticketing information on each stop will be released early next week.
