Singer-songwriter Hayley Kiyoko has announced she is cancelling her tour.
On Saturday afternoon, she posted a message on Twitter explaining her reasoning.
“We have been on this journey for some time now and I’m so proud of this beautiful community of people supporting each other. You inspire me each and everyday. We have grown so much each and every year, and as a community we must continue to grow. With every step forward sometimes we have setbacks that help make us stronger and push harder,” she started her message.
“And so I have some upsetting news,” she continued. “The timing for the tour didn’t go the way we had hoped and due to a lot of factors not aligning for the year ahead, I am forced to make the extremely difficult decision to cancel my upcoming North American tour. I have never cancelled one show date in my entire career and so this is really one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made, and even more heartbreaking to express to you.”
The lengthy message added, “I promise we will look back at this time and know it led to something bigger and greater. Please know that I’m not going anywhere. I won’t be taking any time off. I will be using this time to work extremely hard on finishing my new album in order to give you my absolute best.”
Fans who have already purchased tickets will be offered full-refunds.
