Huge concert pushed in UK amid coronavirus pandemic, netizens shocked

Chinese social media users have been shocked after seeing images of large-scale concerts held by Welsh band the Stereophonics that went ahead in the UK despite the country’s increasing coronavirus crisis. 

Concerts have been cancelled throughout China and the rest of Asia for months, and large festivals such as Coachella and South by Southwest called off in the United States, the Stereophonics performed in Manchester last Friday and packing tens of thousands of people into the shows.

Even many fans of the band were surprised that the shows went ahead as Britain’s confirmed coronavirus cases were approaching 2,000 and 60 people had died in the country.

An image from the Manchester show posted on the band’s official Facebook page, with the caption “Thank you Manchester”, attracted comments such as “I love Stereophonics but this is just irresponsible” and “These progressive countries can’t believe a crisis can happen to them”.

However, other British bands such as Blossoms and Idles have postponed events and tours across the UK due to the coronavirus pandemic.
