Former Disney star Selena Gomez has opted to cancel the remaining tour dates for her Stars Dance concert tour in order to have some “me” time for herself. Billboard reports:
Gomez’ reps announced last month that her international “Stars Dance” tour would swing Down Under and through Asia in the New Year, including dates in Japan, China, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines.
The singer and actress was booked to play 13 shows in the region from mid-January. A five-city tour of Australia – her first – was to start Feb. 1 at Perth Arena. The trek was then expected to head east for dates at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre (Feb. 4), Brisbane Convention Centre (Feb. 6), Sydney Entertainment Centre (Feb. 7) and wrapping Feb. 8 at the 15,000-capacity Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.
The entire slate of “Stars Dance” shows in Japan, South-East Asia and Australia were nixed Friday.
She said in a statement: “My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them. But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be. To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me.”
