Ke$ha Postpones Japanese Tour, but Show Goes On for Ne-Yo

Carlos R. Alvarez/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Following the disaster in Japan, Ke$ha has canceled her upcoming tour of that country.  Billboard reports that in a statement, the singer said, "I genuinely don't think right now would be appropriate timing for me to perform in Japan, given the content and spirit of my show, which is all about feeling exuberant, rowdy and wild."  She added that she'll return to the country "when we are all ready to dance and Get $leazy together again."  Ke$ha, who also pledged to "do everything I can to help relief efforts," will start a U.S. tour leg April 1 in Clarion, Pennsylvania.

However, Ne-Yo decided not to let the recent events in Japan stop him from performing there.  Over the weekend, he gave a concert in the city of Nagoya, and tweeted that he was setting up donation boxes in the venue to help those in need.  He also sold special wristbands, the proceeds from which will go to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami.  The singer will do the same at his show Tuesday in Yokohama and Thursday in Tokyo.  He's calling his campaign "Spread Love Through Music."
