"The Iron Maiden shows will therefore not be taking place in Tokyo on May 19 & 20, and in Osaka on May 22. We send our best wishes to the people of Japan and to all our fans there."

"Amid COVID-19 outbreak, all international artists' shows scheduled up until May 31st 2020 will be either cancelled or postponed," says Creativeman productions in a statement. "Some of the tours during April through May period that have not been officially announced the status yet, will still not happen during the said period. And for those without status, we will soon be able to announce whether it it's cancelled or postponed.

"We are in discussions right now, and we apologize for the inconvenience caused. In any case, please hold on to your tickets, as you will need them for refund.

"Our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families," they added. "Please be safe and stay alert."
