MONSTA X is also unable to attend KAMP Los Angeles 2022 due to visa issues.
Previously, KAMP released an official announcement that Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, EXO’s Kai, GOT7’s BamBam, Jeon Somi, Zion.T, and Lapillus would not be performing at the festival citing ‘visa issues.’ The change in lineup came less than 24 hours from the event opening up to fans. This led to many fans angrily protesting about the lack of planning the event organizers had. The key lineup performers were all not attending due to the visa issues.
And now, MONSTA X also joins the list. Starship Entertainment released a full English statement to tell fans the group will drop out of the lineup. Starship says they fully cooperated with KAMP and were even told to hold off on announcing they’re unable to partake in the event. Starship says the statement could not be delayed any longer because they realize many fans purchased tickets to see the group.
But not only will the KAMP performance be affected for the group, their upcoming schedules in the U.S. will also be affected as a result.
Starship Entertainment’s full English statement is as follows:
The statement caused many fans to criticize KAMP for the handling of the situation as most of its lineup is unable to travel to do the show.
