This is Spire Entertainment.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sad news to all the fans who have been waiting for OMEGA X concerts for a long time.
We regret to inform you that OMEGA X will not be able to perform at their concert in New York as part of the 2022 world Tour [CONNECT: Don’t Give Up] on October 3, 2022.
On October 2, 2022 (local Chilean time), OMEGA X participants and employees had to leave Chile for an exhibition in New York.
However, MC Entertainment, which is responsible for OMEGA X’s US tour, canceled plane tickets to New York without any notice. With the slightest hope of getting new tickets, all participants and employees waited at the airport for six hours. When they finally got the news about getting new tickets for the 23:55 flight on the same day, it was 9:30 pm. and that’s why all the check-in counters for international flights have already been closed.
Due to MC Entertainment’s incomprehensible actions, OMEGA X’s upcoming schedule in North America is currently unknown.
MC Entertainment avoids responsibility for upcoming tours and does not provide us with any feedback or apologies.
We have considered and discussed many ways to keep the promise we made to the fans and make this show possible, but we have not been able to fulfill our promise. We deeply apologize for this.
Please contact the relevant booking offices and request cancellation.
Once again, we are very sorry to send this unpleasant news.
As New York will be their first stop on the US tour, OMEGA X is currently planning 11 shows in the US in October.
