Rex Orange County’s Asia tour in support of ‘Pony’ album has been cancelled

"We will look to plan a new tour when shows can go ahead again and travel is possible"

English singer-songwriter Rex Orange County’s Asia tour has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The British musician was scheduled to tour in support of his 2019 album ‘Pony’ in Singapore, Manila, Jakarta, Bangkok, Tokyo and Seoul earlier this May, but had to postpone the tour following the COVID-19 outbreak.

The artist’s team have now confirmed that the tour is being scrapped altogether for the same reason: “We have tried very hard to plan for the future amongst the continuing global health crisis, but it has become clear that we’re unable to reschedule the PONY Asia tour dates to a new period that we are fully confident will go ahead.

“So it’s with deep regret that we have to cancel the Rex Orange County dates in Asia. We will look to plan a new tour when shows can go ahead again and travel is possible.”

Refund details for the two sold-out Singapore shows will be announced by the end of October, concert promoter Collective Minds said in a statement on Instagram.

We waited as long as we could; unfortunately, the current global situation means that Rex Orange County and his team have been forced to cancel the forthcoming Asia tour. “We have tried very hard to plan for the future amongst the continuing global health crisis, but it has become clear that we’re unable to reschedule the PONY Asia tour dates to a new period that we are fully confident will go ahead. So it’s with deep regret that we have to cancel the Rex Orange County dates in Asia. We will look to plan a new tour when shows can go ahead again and travel is possible.” We at Collective Minds had hoped to still be able to present you with the entertainment as planned, but in the interest of public health and safety, we regretfully cannot move forward. The year has not been kind to our industry, so in the meanwhile, please do give us until the end of October to prepare the refund application process. If you have any questions, please drop us an email at ticketing@collectiveminds.asia. We look forward to seeing all of you again when we can all safely be together. Thank you for your ongoing patience and support, and stay safe and healthy! Be good and love one another, Collective Minds & AEG
