After a whirlwind of a week, James Charles has decided to pull the plug on his upcoming Sisters tour... and we can't necessarily blame him for it.
WATCH James Charles explain why he's cancelling his Sisters tour below:
“Obviously, a lot has gone on in the last few weeks, which has led many people, including myself, wondering what was going to happen to tour,” he said.
“And after the last week of meetings and phone calls and trying to figure it out and talking to myself, my tour company, and my friends and family, we’ve officially come to the very, very tough decision that I am canceling the Sisters Tour.”
“Now I know this sucks, and people are going to be upset and sad about it and trust me, I am really not happy about this either,” James continued.
“I’ve been looking forward to this for so long, but there are reasons why and I’m going to discuss them. And there are a lot of positives to this, too.”
James planned to tour 24 cities around the United States, which would be filled with “music, makeup, and memories”. He said it was a “dream” of his to tour.
“I made the decision to pull the tour,” James added. “This was 100% my decision. None of the venues pulled out, none of the brands that were going to be sponsoring it pulled out, and keep in mind it was almost completely sold out and still, less than 1% of people who bought tickets contacted about refunds.” He said, “The Sisters Tour is not ‘canceled’ because I was ‘canceled.'”
James continued to talk about how he doesn't want to “think about” or “talk about” the events of the last couple of weeks “ever again.”
“Let’s be real, it sucked,” he said. “It put me in a really, really bad place.”
“I’m not better,” he said. “And I’m not back either. But I am trying to move on with my life and focus on good things that make me happy and that can take my mind off of things.”
He continued, “The main reason why I’m deciding to pull the plug on tour is because the next few weeks, and the next few months honestly, I said that I wanted to take time to myself and be with the people that love me and focus on things that make me really, really happy, which is makeup, and being with friends and family and getting my head back in the game of to where I’m very inspired to keep working.”
“It is my absolute number one biggest priority that when I do go on tour, because I still am, make sure you keep watching, that I’m able to walk on stage every single night with a huge smile and present the best version of myself to all of you guys.”
James promised that everyone who purchased a ticket to his tour will get a full refund next week.
