Taipei, Sept. 28 (CNA) After suffering an emotional roller coaster ride on Monday, fans of Bon Jovi were presented with the worst possible news -- the rock band's second concert in Taipei has also been canceled because of Typhoon Dujuan.

On its Facebook page, concert promoter Live Nation Taiwan said it is "with deep regret" that it is announcing the cancellation of the show.

"There are no words to express how sad we are," it wrote.

The announcement came less than two hours after the Taipei city government said offices and schools will be closed throughout the day on Tuesday. The city government said earlier Monday that offices and schools will only be closed Tuesday morning, giving fans the hope that the Tuesday concert will continue as planned.

The cancellation of the Tuesday concert means that Bon Jovi will not be holding any concerts in Taiwan during its visit this time. Its first concert, which was originally scheduled for Monday, was also canceled due to the threat of Typhoon Dujuan.

Tickets can be refunded until Oct. 8, Live Nation Taiwan said.
