Zayn Reportedly Cancels Japan Shows… Again

What you doin Zayn?

Last December, the pop star's reps confirmed Zayn would have to postpone show dates slated for this past January to finish recording his sophomore solo effort.

All good – Zayn would make up for it. He rescheduled to perform this month at the Yokohama Arena on June 18 and added a second show at the Osaka-jo Hall in the Kyobashi area of Osaka, Japan on June 19.

It appears Zayn has not yet finished the record and is cancelling again.


Some fans are blaming the cancellation on poor ticket sales, but others are providing receipts that say otherwise.


Last October, the "I Just Wanna Live Forever" singer pulled out of a show in Dubai due to "extreme anxiety."

"I have been working over the last three months to overcome my extreme anxiety around major live solo performances I feel I am making progress but I have today acknowledged that I do not feel sufficiently confident to move forward with the planned show," he said at the time. "I am truly sorry to disappoint you. I hope to see you all soon."

At this point, Zayn should probably hold off on making any more promises. I can't take away that he makes really great music – possibly the best from any of the One Directioners (love you, Harry) – but this is not a good look.
