-Ayu's May 20th & 21st Osaka Hall Concerts Cancelled Due To Flu Outbreak-
Reportedly by major Japanese and English news sites, Avex initially intended to hold the scheduled six Osaka concerts but eventually cancelled all of them due to the rising number of A-H1N1 infections in Japan.


"The virus has hopscotched through the western prefectures of Osaka and Hyogo, where more than 4,400 schools and some businesses have been temporarily closed..." ~photo and excerpts via Time

Industry-leading record label and management company Avex has canceled concerts by highly popular artists due to the swine flu outbreak in Western Japan. The H1N1 virus has spread in the Kansai (Western Japan) region much quicker than in the Tokyo area.

So far Avex has canceled six concerts by three of its most popular artists, Ayumi Hamasaki, Kumi Koda an Ai Otsuka. The performances would have attracted an estimated 48,000 fans.

Originally the label had planned to provide anti-bacterial disinfectant to patrons at the entrance and mouthwash in the bathrooms, but in the end Avex thought the risk was too great.

Rescheduled dates for the six shows have yet to be announced. ~via BillboardBiz
