Maroon 5 receive backlash for postponing Daegu concert an hour prior



Korea's most loved international boyband Maroon 5 has been receiving backlash from netizens for the sudden postponement of their scheduled Daegu concert last night, September 6.

Before the excited and awaiting fans, promoters of the concert announced that the night's show is cancelled due to Adam's health issues and will be postponed until Thursday. Maroon 5 official twitter also updated last night with,

"We are very sorry to postpone tonight’s show in Daegu until THURSDAY 10 SEPTEMBER. All tickets will be honored." leaving fans in the venue shocked. Adam also posted a photo of him wearing a neck brace and apologized, "Hey guys. sorry we had to reschedule... I posted this photo of sad neck brace Adam purely for your sympathy. See you Thursday! #Maroon5 #Vtour2015"



Despite apologies, most fans poured sentiments on how long and prepared they were waiting in line just to watch the band's performances only to be welcomed with postponement notice. Comments such as follows:

"~~~yung_: irresponsible and unprofessional­čÖů­čĆ╗"

"xxai~~: Many people was waiting for him, but he just canceled that just a hour ago. So all of his fans just go back to there home. There was some people someone who waited for long time at the location and some of them took airplane for the concert."

"Hips~~~: Maroon 5 is so popular in Korea, they are constantly high on the charts (don't ask me why). Their fans must've been so disappointed. It's absolutely a shitty move and disrespectful to postpone a concert an hour before. Reminds me of Foo Fighter's frontman Dave Grohl who kept the concert going when he broke his leg during the show. And after the concert they made timely adjustments for the rest of the tour. Such actions deserve to be praised. Such a shame....

edit:
Is he even wearing his neck brace correctly?"

"~~ni__s: i waited for four months just to see you. I chose to go to Daegu even I live in Seoul because I have to work during the week. It took 4 hours to Daegu from Seoul and you gave me shit one hour before the start."

"Amy~~~: So disappointed. Can u plz tell us the reason y u guys rescheduled tonight's concert!!! Cuz we can't accept y it should be cancelled. Btw it wasn't a car accident. If it was, it would be on today's news also I can't c any scars on Adam's Instagram photo. God tell us the reason!! Adam, if u have a neck problem, how can u have a concert tomorrow @ Seoul? U r not a wolverine obviously. SO TELL US A REASON!!!"

Apparently, fans aren't convinced enough with the band's reason to call off the show and are demanding an elaborate public apology. Meanwhile, Maroon 5's concert in Seoul tonight is on!

Do fans have the right to be frustrated?
