Filipino pop group SB19 have pushed their second virtual show from July to August.
Named Back In The Zone, the show will take place August 1 (Sunday) at 7.30pm PHT. Tickets purchased for the original July 18 date will remain valid.
SB19 postponed the concert “due to identified health and safety concerns during the concert preparations”, the band said in a statement on July 6. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. The health and safety of everyone involved in the concert is our top priority.”

The P-pop group held their first virtual show back in November where they performed songs from their debut album ‘Get In The Zone’. The show was viewed by fans globally via the Australian streaming platform Global Live.
“After weeks of hardship and not knowing how this concert will turn out, now I can say that it was all worth it,” Stell Ajero said during the show, per Bandwagon Asia.

This year, SB19 have released two singles – ‘What?’ and ‘Mapa’ – and will be releasing their ‘Pagsibol’ EP soon. The group have dubbed this comeback “Ikalawang Yugto”, which translates to “Second Chapter”. While the group had planned a virtual launch for ‘What?’ in March, the event was postponed due to COVID-19 exposure within the group’s members.
Last month, SB19 teamed up with fellow Filipino group Ben&Ben on a full band version of ‘Mapa’. Over the weekend, SB19 performed at the TikTok Awards Philippines, taking home the Top Celebrity Award.
