Japanese Breakfast has cancelled a show in Rochester, New York for September after learning that the venue was secretly moving forward with a far-right event as part of the Reawaken America tour.

Yesterday (14 July) on Twitter, Japanese Breakfast shared a tweet regarding an upcoming show at Rochester's Main Street Armory on 27 September, revealing that it is cancelled after a "number of people reached out letting us know they were boycotting the venue because of the Reawaken America tour."

"We were told the event was cancelled and later learned it was secretly still moving forward," Japanese Breakfast added.

In another tweet, Japanese Breakfast wrote that they are "unfortunately unable to move the event to a different venue this time but we love Rochester and I am sure we will return someday soon."

The Reawaken America tour is a travelling speaking event for conspiracy theories that protests COVID-19 restrictions and believes the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump.
