After its initial postponement, Rex Orange County’s Asia tour has officially been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus situation.
Concert promoters including Collective Minds and Insignia Presents took to Instagram to announce the news today (13/10), stating that the decision was made after long deliberation. Refunds will be initiated starting October, with online ticket purchases automatically reversed for fans in the Philippines. Ticket holders in Indonesia will be contacted by Loket via email.

“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,” Collective Minds wrote.
“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 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 email@example.com. 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

The Pony Tour in Asia had six countries in its roster, including Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, and South Korea. Due to popular demand, a second show for Rex Orange County’s debut in Singapore was added, turning it into a two-night affair. The tour was held in support of his 2019 album, Pony.
Two weeks ago, Rex Orange County released his new EP Live At Radio City Music Hall, along with his tour documentary Funny How Things Go From One Thing To Another. Watch it here:
