A two-day outdoor concert was planned for Love Live! Sunshine!! VA unit Aqours back in May, but it was initially canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the organizers have been looking into the possibility of safely holding the event at a later date despite the State of Emergency declarations, they finally decided that the festivities need to be fully scrapped.
Those who purchased tickets will be able to get refunds from June 22 to July 21. Here’s what the official statement had to say about the cancellation:
“We had continued to make arrangements for a substitute performance, but with no prospect of the situation being resolved, we have come to the conclusion that it will be difficult to hold this concert in Shizuoka under the best possible conditions and have decided to cancel the concert itself. We sincerely apologize to all those who have been looking forward to the concert for such a long time. All of the Love Live! Sunshine! team members will do our best to bring you a stage that will make you happy again.”
