Korean hip-hop group B.A.P announced that it will be cancelling its South American concert leg on its official Facebook.
The sextet debuted in January 2012 and has released one studio album, three mini albums and four single albums in Korea. Additionally, B.A.P has released four single albums in Japan. In the midst of promoting their music, they have also held three concert tours to date.
Their label, TS Entertainment, took to their official Facebook account to make the announcement in a four languages – Korean, English, Japanese and Spanish.
In their release, they stated, “(W)e concluded that B.A.P deserves the sufficient time to get recharged in return for their relentless effort and endeavor and this is the time. So, we made the decision to suspend B.A.P's official schedule after Music Bank In Mexico and for them to take a rest for a while, because the artist condition is the top priority for us. (sic)”
TS continued, “Therefore, we’re very sorry to inform you that we decided to cancel B.A.P Live On Earth 2014 South America Attack to be scheduled on November after talking with Hallyutrend in full faith who has been organized the tour. Even though we’re fully aware that lots of BABYs were waiting for B.A.P’s shows, we inevitably reached this conclusion so that B.A.P can show a better performance with a better condition in the near future; we look forward to your kind understanding. (sic)”
They ended off the post thanking fans for their continued support and concern, promising that “B.A.P will come back with the Best, Absolute, and Perfect stage/performance than ever within a short time.”
B.A.P released its first studio album, First Sensibility, earlier this year and their current B.A.P Live On Earth 2014 Continent Tour kicked off in Seoul on March 8, bringing them to cities such as New York, London, Taipei, Osaka and Singapore.
