K-pop singer and former 15& member Jamie has announced the postponement of her 2022 North American tour, days before its first stop in Los Angeles.
The sudden, indefinite postponement of the ‘One Bad Night’ tour was announced via social media by concert organisers MODO-Live on October 4. “Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, Jamie’s North American tour will be postponed to a to-be-determined date in the future,” the announcement read.
MODO-Live also added in the same announcement that options for refunds will be made available at point of purchase, and will also be offered upon request.

The abrupt postponement of Jamie’s tour was made only days before its first stop was supposed to take place in Los Angeles’ 1720 on October 10. The ‘One Bad Night’ tour, first announced in August, was previously scheduled to hit Canadian cities Vancouver and Toronto after, before returning to four more cities in the US for the remainder of the month.
The news also coincided with the impending release of Jamie’s brand-new mini-album ‘One Bad Night’, due out later today (October 5) at 6pm KST. The record is set to be led by title track ‘3D Woman’, which notably credits Jamie as both a co-lyricist and co-composer. She has also worked on several B-sides off the album, including ‘Honesty’ and ‘Bedtime Story’, the latter of which features South Korean rapper GEMINI. Watch a preview of her new record via her Instagram page here.
Formerly known as Jimin Park, the singer first rose to fame as a member of JYP Entertainment vocal duo 15& with Baek Yerin in 2012. The duo disbanded following Park’s departure from the agency in 2019. She later signed with Warner Music Korea and continued her solo music career with her English name, Jamie.
