After giving two sold-out performances at Tokyo’s Orchard Hall during the last week of September, Mozza was scheduled to play at Yokohama’s Bay Hall on Oct. 1 but canceled on the morning of the show.

According to the website of Creativeman Productions, the show’s presenter, it was cancelled “due to logistical issues.”

Yokohama Bay Hall is one of the oldest mid-size music auditoriums in Japan, and it’s not clear what the logistical issue was. The following night’s concert at Osaka’s IMP Hall went ahead as scheduled.
