Phem, who was due to open for Lil Xan on the tour, said that she is “so sorry” and “if it was up to me it wouldn’t be cancelled.”
“I had no control in the situation and would’ve played every show,” she said to fans in a tweet. “I understand your frustration.”
Lil Xan is reportedly working on rescheduling the cancelled shows but nothing has been announced yet.
