Japanese rock band ONE OK ROCK have postponed their Eye of the Storm Asia Tour shows in Jakarta until further notice.
Originally slated for May 30 to 31, 2020, the shows were initially rescheduled to the same dates on 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But in an Instagram post on December 7, concert promoter Sound Rhythm said the shows were off for the foreseeable future.
“Due to the seriousness of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the imposed restrictions have made it difficult for many parties to travel and organise a live concert at the moment,” Sound Rhythm wrote. “It is with a heavy heart that ONE OK ROCK’s management, AEG Presents Asia, PK Entertainment, and Sound Rhythm have regretfully decided to postpone the shows in Jakarta indefinitely.”
“Let’s hope together that the situation will reach a level where it is safe for us all to come together once again to celebrate live concert performances in our beloved venues.”
Ticketholders can request refunds from December 14 to 31 on the concert’s official website.

ONE OK ROCK was scheduled to do a seven-city tour across Asia to promote their latest album ‘Eye of the Storm’, which was released last year. Concert promoters in cities like Manila and Singapore have previously announced indefinite postponements of the band’s shows.

In a statement last March, ONE OK ROCK said they were “working on new dates for both the Nagoya show and the Asia tour. However, if adjustment cannot be made due to conflicting venue schedules, the performance may have to be relocated to a different venue or cancelled entirely.”

ONE OK ROCK is one of many acts whose shows in Asia were affected by the pandemic. Bands like Slipknot and Green Day have postponed their Asian tours, while Billie Eilish cancelled her show in Manila – part of her Where Do We Go? world tour – entirely.
