And it's almost certainly going to lead to a delay for the rest of the Miku Expo North America tour along with it... TImes we live in.

Maybe... Probably only if other similar-sized concerts start getting cancelled/delayed. Coachella is a gargantuan event, multiple days long, with hundreds of thousands of attendees, who are likely to have traveled long distances. The risk of spreading a virus through something like that is a lot higher than the small-to-moderate size of a Miku concert. But I guess we'll see.

They already stating they're "reconsidering" the rest of the tour dates, in light of these events. That's an almost guarantee that they're checking with the other venues whether postponement is feasible. I mean, even excluding coronavirus considerations (and Miku concerts easily surpass the 1000 people cap that several countries placed on live events), simply moving all the staff and equipment to the US/Canada in April/May, then back to Japan and back again in October is a logistic nightmare I think they'd rather avoid.

I mean, it's almost guaranteed to be postponed at this point, I just hope they don't have to drop any venues, it was shaping up to be a really good tour.
