Taken from Joel’s facebook page: “Hey to all my Japanese Friends, I really appreciate all your supoprt for what I do and my music but at this time I feel that it would not be aproproate timing for me to perform in Japan given the content and spirit of my show. I promise to visit Japan in at the earlest possible opportunity and I 100% assure you that this is just a postponement of an epic show which I am very much looking forward to delivering very soon. As you know I’ve auctioned off the Diamonte Mau5 head to do all I can to help you out in your time of need. It did well and I hope this in some small way helps put your awesome country back on its feet.”
