On her social media accounts, Kina said that the remaining dates on her Southeast Asia tour "have been postponed indefinitely for reasons beyond my control." Read her what she had to say below:
To my friends in the Philippines, Malaysia, and across Southeast Asia: I have just learned that the remaining dates of my Southeast Asia tour have been postponed indefinitely for reasons entirely beyond my control. I am so devastated by this news, not to mention the cancelation of all but one of my shows on this tour. Words cannot express how sorry I am for the inconveniences this undoubtedly has caused so many of you. I truly hope I can find the means to get back here someday soon to make it up to you. : @rubindanny
Kina's Manila concert was supposed to be held on September 27 at the Kia Theater at Araneta Center.
Kina was able to make it to the Jakarta stop of her Elements Tour in Asia, but had to cancel her shows in Taiwan, Taipei, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Kina apologized for cancelling all these shows on Twitter, but couldn't divulge any details. For her Hong Kong stop though, Kina said that she couldn't make it because of "immigration issues."
Hong Kong—This saddens me so deeply, but due to immigration issues the show tomorrow has been canceled. Refunds will be issued, and (cont’d)— kina grannis (@kinagrannis) September 19, 2015
…we are working hard to reschedule the show in a couple weeks. I will let you know as soon as I hear any updates.— kina grannis (@kinagrannis) September 19, 2015
The organizers of Kina's concert, Creon Asia, have yet to release a statement.
Kina rose to fame by posting videos of her singing on YouTube, and then winning the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest in 2008, which got her a contract with Interscope Records. She's been writing her own music, doing covers, and collaborating with other musicians ever since. – Rappler.com
