2AM Jo Kwon tests Covid positive, band's first concert in 9 years CANCELED
The K-pop group 2AM had just made a comeback to the music industry after seven long years and was set to meet fans with the group's first-ever concert after nine whole years but it looks like the ongoing pandemic is not doing the group any favors. Just as Covid-19 seemed to be giving K-pop idols a rest, it turns out more idols and Korean entertainers tested positive for the virus.
2AM’s Jo Kwon is one of the K-pop idols who were reported to have tested positive for Covid-19 on February 11 and due to this, Cube Entertainment, the label that manages the group, announced that the upcoming 2AM concert would be postponed until the member recovers and tests negative for the virus so as to contain the spread of Covid-19 among staff and fans.

Upon the arrival of his results as of February 11 it was confirmed that Jo Kwon was positive for Covid-19 and would take all the necessary precautions to curb the spread of the virus as he recovers.
Cube Entertainment also reported that Jo Kwon had already completed the third dose of his Covid-19 vaccine and now would suspend all of his upcoming schedules, including the 2AM concert so as to abide by the official guidelines.

Culture Depot and Dreamus Company, the company that was in charge of the 2AM concert, went on to officially call off the upcoming 2AM concert which was scheduled to take off on February 12 and 13 due to Jo Kwon testing positive for Covid. In their statement, the organizers of the concert stated that the concert from 2AM titled, ‘2AM Concert 22 S/S’ will be canceled until further notice as a precautionary measure.
The company also reported that tickets for the same could be canceled by fans from their respective ticketing platforms and refunds for the same will be issued as per the terms and conditions of each platform. It was also announced that since 2AM members wish to hold a concert once Jo Kwon fully recovers, the tickets for the revised concert dates will be sold on priority first to fans who purchased tickets for ‘2AM Concert 22 S/S’.
