Taiwanese pop singer Jolin Tsai (蔡依林), is scheduled to throw three concerts in Taipei City in April as part of her "Ugly Beauty World Tour", according to organizers, in another indication that Taiwan has managed to contain the spread of COVID-19 .

The organizers said the three concerts will be held at the Taipei Arena starting April 23 and run for three days in a row. Tickets will be up for grabs starting at 3:28 p.m. on March 28 on the ticket selling platform KKTIX.

Tsai's Ugly Beauty World Tour began in Taipei at the end of 2019, and consisted of six concerts that were held into January 2020, grossing about NT $ 180 million (US $ 6.38 million) in total.

The tour moved to Kaohsiung City in November 2020, with six concerts grossing an additional NT $ 160 million.

While many cities in the world have imposed restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Taiwan, which is well known for its successful efforts in containing the virus, has become one of the few countries where artists are still able to perform and innovators able to. showcase their gadgets in physical venues.

Taiwanese rock band Mayday has also scheduled five concerts for May 20, 21, 27, 28 and 29 in Tainan City as part of the group's tour, which started in December 2020. Each of the concerts to be held in Tainan Municipal Stadium is expected to host 25,000 attendees.

The organizers of Tsai's concerts said they had previously planned to hold outdoor concerts in Taoyuan or Taichung cities, but fears over possible unstable weather conditions prompted them to abort the idea. April is close to the spring rainy period, called "plum rain" season, which begins in May in Taiwan.

After thorough discussions, the organizers said, Tsai decided to hold the three concerts in Taipei again.

"The return to Taipei allows me to feel like a wife who goes back to her parental home," Tsai said.

So far, Taiwan has less than 1,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 10 deaths, with no lockdown imposed. Although a hospital cluster infection had raised worries and caused the cancellation of the Taiwan Lantern Festival last month, the health authorities managed to quickly prevent the infections from spreading further.

The world tour was named after Tsai's successful album "Ugly Beauty", which was released in 2018, the 14th album from the diva. In December 2020, Tsai and pop singer Jay Chou (周杰倫), as well as Mayday, appeared on Forbes Asia's inaugural list of "100 Digital Stars," who had maintained their status through social media, amid the lack of physical events during the COVID -19 pandemic.
