Mirror fans offered refund following accident

Organisers of the Hong Kong group Mirror’s concert series have said that customers with tickets to the eight shows which were cancelled following an accident last month are entitled to a refund, or are able to hold on to tickets for a future show.

Two dancers were heavily injured during a performance from the 12-piece boyband when an LED screen fell to the stage. All subsequent shows, which were part of a 12-event series at the Hong Kong Coliseum (pictured), were cancelled.

One dancer remains in a critical condition while the other is in intensive care, but is stable, according to reports.

MakerVille, the production company behind the series, said that fans would be eligible for a complete refund from next month, or they could hold on to tickets. However, there is no further news on when the Canto-pop group will be performing again in the next 12 months.

The company also said that if there was no announcement of a future concert in Hong Kong before September 14 next year, fans will then be contacted over a refund.

The refunds are not the only news to emerge concerning Mirror this week, as a transport worker received five months in prison for selling fake tickets.

So Lok-lam, who is 20 years old, was also ordered to compensate the victim HK$500 (£53/$64/€63). Lok-lam pleaded guilty to obtaining property by deception and possessing a false instrument when appearing before Amy Chan Wai-mun at West Kowloon magistrates court.

A local buyer had planned to buy two tickets from Lok-lam for HK$10,000 in May, and met up with the seller. However, she became suspicious before Lok-lam took the money and ran before being apprehended by members of the public and police. He was found with other fake tickets on his person.
