On January 6, the label Avex Group released an official notice regarding Wendy’s participation in Red Velvet’s upcoming Japan arena tour:
We wanted to inform you about “Red Velvet Arena Tour in JAPAN – La Rouge”, which will be held from Saturday, January 11, 2020.
Red Velvet’s Wendy will not be joining the tour due to an injury she suffered from falling off stage during the rehearsal of a show in South Korea late last year.
As a result, this tour will continue with four members – Irene, Seulgi, Joy, and Yeri – as scheduled.
We apologize for causing any worry and inconvenience while you were expecting Wendy’s appearance.
With Wendy not participating, we will provide a ticket refund to those who choose not to attend. For details on ticket refunds and concert merchandise, please see the links* below.
We will inform you again about Wendy’s plans to resume activities in Japan as soon as it is decided.
We appreciate your continued support for Wendy and Red Velvet.
The “La Rouge Arena Tour” includes five concerts in four Japanese cities in the period from January 11 to March 8. For more on the dates and venues, click here, and the recap of the first concert in Seoul (including the expected setlist) is available on this link.
