Bon Jovi Cancels Taipei Concert Due to Typhoon
Typhoon Dujuan is expected to make landfall in northern Taiwan Monday night.
Bon Jovi's Asian tour has hit another roadblock, as a looming typhoon forced the cancelation of a Monday show in Taipei.
The show was pulled by order of the city's Central Weather Bureau instructing residents to cease all school and work as a precaution against Typhoon Dujuan, which is expected to make landfall in northern Taiwan on Monday evening.
The band made the announcement on its website "with deep regret" late Sunday evening. The Sept. 29 show at Taipei's Nangang Exhibition Hall is expected to go on as scheduled, according to Live Nation Taiwan.
The Tuesday night show marks the Bon Jovi's first Taiwan performance in 20 years. The band’s last appearances were in 1993 and 1995.
Disappointed fans took to Facebook and Twitter pleading with the group to reconsider.
“Please reconsider to hold the concert on schedule. We have waited this show for 20 years ! Thank you so much!,” Bon Jovi fan Kai Chaig wrote on the band’s website.
