Just a few days ago, we told you about drummer Meto of Mejibray’s nasty fall that resulted in several postponed performances on their ongoing one-man tour. Unfortunately, fans, the bad news doesn’t end there.
Yesterday, Mejibray’s management released a statement saying that in addition to the previously-postponed performances, the final June 6th show of the tour in Tokyo will also have to be postponed. You can read the fully translated version of the OHP’s announcement below, translated by Ku and yours truly:
June 6th, 2014 @ Zepp Diver City Tokyo
As we are unable to foresee the full recovery of drummer Meto’s bone fractures suffered on the morning of May 23rd, we have unfortunately made the hurried decision to postpone this show in MEJIBRAY’s 3rd anniversary 7-city one-man tour 「新章:SM=イツカヒビキワタルウツクシキミニクイヴォイスダイバー」(Shinsho: SM= Itsuka Hibiki Wataru Utsukushiki Mi Nikui Voice Diver).
We apologize from the bottom of our hearts to those who were looking forward to the show that the situation has become like this.
This is an excerpt of his medical report released on May 26th:
Diagnosis: Fractured upper right jaw
Fractured right zygoma
Right distal clavicle fracture
Right ilium avulsion fracture
Right kidney damage
“Rushed to the hospital on May 23rd, 2014. He is expected to be hospitalized for two weeks. The hospitalization period may change according to his progression.”
The shows will be rescheduled depending on Meto’s recovery and the band’s schedule. We will notify you of the dates on our official website when a decision has been reached.
- For those who wish to refund their ticket following the postponement, we will notify you of details on the official website later on.
- For those who already purchased tickets to the performance, you will be able to use those same tickets at the postponed shows with the same ticket number.
- The original ticket is necessary for a refund, so please keep your ticket if you wish to exchange it.
While this is certainly disappointing news for fans who wanted to attend the show and overseas fans alike, it seems the band wants to give the drummer ample time to recover. Let’s continue to hope for a speedy recovery and a speedier return to band activities.
