MBLAQ concert in Manila cancelled due to ‘technical’ problems


MANILA, Philippines –  The MBLAQ’s “First Contact” concert in Manila has been cancelled “due to technical and  production concerns,” the  promoters and  producers of the  group  announced on Monday.

The concert was scheduled Monday night at Aliw Center. It was originally scheduled Sunday night  but was moved  because according to its organizers, the Korean pop group “wasn’t able to board the plane” for Manila.

“The managers and producers of MBLAQ: First Contact regret to inform fans, sponsors, and the public that due to technical and production concerns the concert is cancelled,” it said in a statement.

“The managers and producers extend their deepest and sincere apology for these unforeseen developments and any inconvenience this may have caused,” it added.

All tickets purchased from SM Tickets, they said, will be fully refunded upon surrender at the outlet where it was originally purchased. Marielle Medina.
