Jepsen's battle with Typhoon Soudelor began over the weekend (08-09Aug15) when flights into Taiwan were disrupted by the tropical storm, and she later called off her planned appearance at a music festival in Taipei on Sunday (09Aug15) as she was unable to travel, tweeting, "I am heartbroken that our trip to Taiwan is postponed bc (because) of the typhoon."

The whole festival was later postponed due to the problems facing the artists and the severe weather.

The singer had been due to pick up her tour in the Philippines on Wednesday (12Aug15), but that gig was also axed over the summer cyclone. Jepson announced the postponement in a message shared on, writing, "My show in Manila on August 12th is being rescheduled for September 14th due to the typhoon. See you soon."

The gigs are slated to resume in Tokyo, Japan on 17 August (15).
