Mayday rocks at Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium

TAIPEI (The China Post) — Taiwanese rock band Mayday (五月天) expressed their fear and concern over fans asking for return tickets in the last of the six Taoyuan concerts held on Sunday.  

The three consecutive concerts, which were set to kick off from Dec. 25-27 last year, were postponed to Jan. 8-10 due to the pandemic.   

“I was afraid no one would come at that time as we made the announcement,” the guitarist Stone (石頭) said, expressing his worries about fans asking for refunds then.  

The lead singer, Ashin (阿信), said that after 14-day quarantine, they would bring the best performance tonight.

Masa (瑪莎), Mayday’s bassist, said that Taiwan can still hold a large-scale concert, which is almost impossible in the world.  

“I am thankful for fans complying with the rules and wearing a mask,” Masa said.   

Among the other highlights, the band showed a video of medical staff wearing masks and protective clothing when singing “Brave” to thank the hardworking frontline health workers.   

Mayday sang for nearly four hours with nearly 25,000 fans packing the Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium (桃園國際棒球場).  

While the six concerts in Taoyuan came to an end, Mayday will hold five Taichung concerts on February 17, 18, 20, 21 and 22.  

Tainan concerts will kick off on March 20, 21, 27, 28, 29.
