Sonic Live Asia’s official statement

Meanwhile, Hayley Williams is currently under doctor’s care in Jakarta and probably will take a little rest before returning to United States. Sonic Live Asia as the promoter also officially announced the cancellation on their social media. There hasn’t been too many details about the purchased tickets, whether there will be refund from the promoter or something else. There will be more announcements coming in the future. So you’d better stay tuned to their social media for the latest updates. It seems like the goddess of fortune does not favor this new promoter much, as they also received some backlash during POND’s tour after there was a little mishap on venue’s announcement (it was suddenly changed into Rossi Musik in last minute, before returning once again to The Pallas). As they have promised to invite more foreign musicians to Indonesia, it will be a hard time recovering from this one. Get well soon Hayley and we do hope to see you soon in Jakarta!
