SEOUL, South Korea (CelebrityAccess) — Singer/songwriter Richard Marx announced that he's canceling a publicity trip to South Korea in light of the tense international situation around the Asian nation's northern neighbor North Korea.
Marx was slated to visit the country this week to promote a series of upcoming concert dates, but Korea Art Company, organizer of Marx's shows next month, said the publicity trip was canceled citing "military tensions."
"Due to widely reported military tensions in the region, Richard Marx's security team has advised him to postpone his tour of Korea," the company said, adding, that Marx was "personally disappointed and hopeful that his Korean fans will understand, and that he can visit Korea in the near future."
Despite the cancellation, Korea Art Company said that Marx's scheduled concerts in June are still a go. – Staff Writers
