The Giang Brothers, a Vietnamese acrobatic duo where one balances on the head of the other, have had to postpone a special show meant to pay tribute to supporters due to injuries the younger incurred when participating in the 2018 Britain’s Got Talent.

Giang Quoc Co and Giang Quoc Nghiep, along with their media people and family members, announced the show delay during a press conference in Ho Chi Minh City on Monday.

The event was scheduled for June 28, as a ‘thank-you show’ the brothers want to dedicate to home supporters, who rooted for them during the course of the 2018 Britain’s Got Talent.

The daredevil Vietnamese gymnast brothers were invited to participate in the 2018 Britain’s Got Talent, and won their way to be among the famed TV show’s 11 finalists.

The duo’s signature act involves the older Co, 34, performing stunts while balancing his younger brother head to head.

During their practice before the show’s semi-final, Nghiep unfortunately fell and his head hit a stair.

However, the daredevils held in the pain and continued to practice and perform, until the TV talent show ended on June 4.

But this has caused Nghiep’s neck, head and hand joints to be extremely swollen, and his right arm to almost become numb.

Upon returning to Ho Chi Minh City from the UK with his older brother on June 10, to the warm welcome of their families and fans, Nghiep went straight to the hospital for a check-up.

The 28-year-old’s MRI scans revealed that his right hand has fractured, with doctors advising that Nghiep take a break from performing for treatment.

The brothers therefore had to put off their free-admission show, titled “Dung so hai” (Don’t be scared), to an unknown date, they told reporters on Monday.
