Outside of China, Japan has the most case of the coronavirus with 518 virus cases, including a death. The government has warned the public to avoid non-urgent, non-essential gatherings.
Following on from this, Stardom, owned by New Japan’s parent company Bushiroad has canceled four upcoming shows, with a fifth now being held in an empty Korakuen Hall with no fans in attendance.
New Japan themselves are not canceling any shows, but will not be holding any meet and greets or autograph signings. They will also be offering alcohol disinfectant sprays at shows, and have requested that fans wear surgical masks. Refunds will be made available to fans who would prefer not to attend March’s shows.
Other promotions have not yet announced their plans, but further cancellations are expected with the public’s health being such a high priority.
