Her first show for this leg of the tour was scheduled for Saturday (Dec. 10, 2016) at Perth Arena. The statement from Live Nation added, “Due to Amy Schumer’s tight schedule it is not possible to schedule replacement dates however, we will be working to confirm a return to Australia as soon as is practical.” Schumer and Live Nation apologized for “any disappointment” that the cancellation caused.
