On June 11th, 2019, through their official SNS GOT7 announced the postponed ticket sales for their upcoming European concert tour without any specific reason.
The official GOT7 statement was written on the official fan-page:
“GOT7 2019 WORLD TOUR ‘KEEP SPINNING’ IN EUROPE
Postponement Notice of Ticket Sales
We inform you that the ticket sales for GOT7 2019 WORLD TOUR ‘KEEP SPINNING’ IN EUROPE has been postponed.
The updated schedule of the ticket sales will be announced later on.

Many fans expressed their disappointment and worry on social media regarding this news shortly before the tour, but many are rooting for a safe and fun tour for the members. The JYP boy group will be starting their world tour on June 15th in Seoul and ending it in Manila in late October.
Tour in Hong Kong Postponed
On August 16th, JYP Entertainment announced the postponement of GOT7’s upcoming world tour concert ‘Keep Spinning in Hong Kong’.
Here’s the agency official statement,
Hello. This is JYP Entertainment.
Due to potential safety issues in light of the current situation in Hong Kong, we notify you that GOT7’s 2019 world tour ‘Keep Spinning in Hong Kong’, originally scheduled from August 31st – September 1st, 2019, will be postponed.
We apologized sincerely to fans who were looking forward to the show.
All tickets/seats will be fully refunded, and per future updates, ticket sales will occur again at a later time.
We will notify fans who are cheering for GOT7 with the fastest and most efficient updates.
Ahgases (GOT7’s fandom) went online on Wednesday to urge GOT7’s management company JYP Entertainment to cancel the concerts on August 31st and September 1st. The #JYPE_CancelGOT7HKConcerts movement started in response to animosity from some Hongkongers towards Jackson Wang following a post on Weibo in which he said he regarded himself as a guardian of the Chinese flag.
Jackson is on weibo trends because HK mobs threatening to hurt him. HK is getting down💔💔💔💔#JYPE_CancelGOT7HKConcerts cancel it to protect the boys and the fans. you cant cash in on them any more if they get hurt. pic.twitter.com/DIUpfHJrhX

Highlights From The North American Tour
The last time GOT7 were in the States was for a fan meeting about four years ago in San Francisco, California. Though the group promised to be back the next year, it took a while until they were able to return. Luckily for them, they returned to play arenas on this tour.
Held at Oracle Arena on July 10th, 2019, fans from all over Northern California and beyond had been lined up since morning to see GOT7. The GOT7 stage set up was simple, yet very extravagantly done. The group boasts three huge movable screens that stack up like Russian dolls. These huge screens move up and down on a lever and pulley system to create a really dynamic stage entrance for the group.
As the prologue VCR began, the entire arena lit up in lime green birds with many fans boasting stylishly neon clothing. They started off their set with dynamic tracks like “Eclipse,” “Out,” and “Never Ever.” After introducing themselves to the audience, they began their solo stages with JB’s solo “Ride” stage, Youngjae’s solo “Gravity” stage, the AmeriThaiKong (Jackson, Mark, and BamBam) stage, and the Jinyoung and Yugyeom duo stage.
At the previous stop in Los Angeles, the boys also did a lot of fan service by jumping off the stage and into the crowds to say hello personally to fans. After bidding fans goodbye, the group did come back on stage for an epic encore performance where they were showered in tons of gifts. The group performed songs in what ultimately lasted to be a two-and-a-half-hour concert.
Comeback After World Tour
On October 10th, 2019, one exclusive media outlet report claimed that GOT7 were busy preparing for their comeback album, set for release sometime in November.
JYP Entertainment representatives were quick to respond with an official statement, relaying, “It’s true that the GOT7 members are currently preparing for their new album; however, we will notify all regarding the group’s specific comeback date once they are confirmed.”
GOT7’s schedule has been packed with world tours. The group released their tenth extended play, Call My Name, on November 4th, 2019. Following the conclusion of their Keep Spinning World Tour in late October, JYP Entertainment began posting various teasers as part of the EP’s promotional campaign, including a series of images for each individual member. The campaign was noted to have a “serious” and “sexy” vibe, with the members pictured in “basic colors” in a “sparsely decorated studio.”
