“Heartbreak and Healing: Katharine McPhee’s Emotional Decision to Cancel Asia Shows

Katharine McPhee is shortening the length of her shows in Asia.

The former Smash! star, who is 39 years old, said on Instagram on Friday that she would miss the last two shows of the David Foster & Friends Asia Tour 2023, where she has been singing as a special guest with her husband David Foster, so she could deal with a “family tragedy” back home.

In a note to fans in Jakarta, she said, “It breaks my heart to tell you that I have to miss the last two shows of our Asia tour.”


“David and I have had a horrible tragedy in our family, and at least one of us needs to get back home to our family,” she said, but she didn’t say what had happened.


Due to a “terrible family tragedy,” Katharine and David Foster have to cancel their shows in Asia.

McPhee ended his message by saying, “Please know how sorry I am and how much I want to come back and play for you all someday.”


Several of the singer’s friends sent their best wishes, including Masked Singer judge Nicole Scherzinger, who wrote, “Sending my love and prayers for your family.”

Foster’s ex-wife, Linda Thompson, also left a message: “Sending you and David love and hoping everything is OK.” Amanda Kloots also wrote, “Sending you lots of love. I am thinking about you.”


Foster, who is 73 years old, will keep performing at the last two concerts of his Asia tour, which are planned for Friday, August 11, and Saturday, August 12, at Jakarta’s Sentul International Convention Centre.

As of Friday morning, details were posted on his website.

“It Makes Sense,” says Katharine McPhee. Her son with David Foster has a talent for music.

After their show in Jakarta, the two were going to take a three-month break from the tour before starting to perform again in the U.S. on November 1 at the Andiamo Celebrity Showroom in Warren, Michigan.


People has tried to get more information from Katharine and David Foster’s representatives.


Foster and McPhee have a 2-year-old son named Rennie David, but it’s not clear if the family went on tour with them or not. In October, they told PEOPLE how proud they were of their son’s new music skills.


“We think [he’ll be musical], but we don’t know,” says Foster. “Kids do strange things. They’ll do something for a while, which will amaze you, and then they’ll just stop doing it.

So we don’t know if the drumming thing is here to stay. To be honest, I’d rather see him holding a tennis racket than a drumstick.

But if he becomes a drummer, that would also be great. He loves to watch JR Robinson, our drummer.

In August of last year, the “Over It” singer posted two cute videos on her Instagram Story of Rennie playing different instruments around the house.

First, Rennie was seen hitting on different keys behind a piano. Then, he was seen tapping on an electronic drum pad.

“It makes sense that he’d be musical,” McPhee said on Entertainment Tonight. “He sure is crazy about the drums! Or even drums that don’t exist.”


Foster said, though, that their son is too “young” for them to know if he’ll follow in their path and work in the music business.


“When you look at people like [athletes] Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, their kids are very talented, but they’re not tennis players, so we don’t know,” he said.
