(G)I-DLE canceled their Bangkok concert in early February, but were scheduled to go ahead with the rest of the tour. With the postponement of their tour, they, along with a long list of artists, have decided to err on the side of caution to help contain the outbreak of the COVID-19.
(G)I-DLE was originally scheduled to embark on their world tour in April, making 32 stops in cities all over the world.
