Katharine McPhee Leaves Tour Early Due to 'Horrible Tragedy' in Family as Husband David Foster Continues

The couple were performing together on the 'Hitman' tour in Asia.

Katharine McPhee is rushing home to handle a "horrible tragedy." The 39-year-old singer was on the road with her husband, David Foster, for the couple's Hitman tour, but had to cut her time short. 

In a message to her fans in Jakarta, Indonesia, McPhee shared on Friday via Instagram, "It's with heavy heart I announce I have to miss our final 2 shows of our Asia run." 

Without revealing exactly what happened, McPhee noted, "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." 

Apologizing for having to leave the tour, the American Idol alum promised to return "one day" to perform for the Asian audiences. 

The message implies that Foster, 73, will continue on with the tour, performing the final two shows. 

McPhee and Foster got a lot of love in the comments from their famous friends. 

Amanda Kloots wrote, "Sending you loads of love. I’m thinking of you guys."

Foster's ex-wife, Linda Thompson, wrote, "Sending you and David love, & hoping that everything is OK🙏🏻💜"

Nicole Scherzinger commented, "Sending my love and prayers for your family 🙏🏽❤️"

McPhee and Foster are parents to 2-year-old son Rennie. It's unclear whether the little boy was traveling with his parents on their tour. In June, Foster shared a video of his son's impressive drumming skills on Instagram, writing, "PROGRESS!! 2yrs 3mon."

Foster is also dad to five adult daughters from previous relationships. 

In addition to performing with McPhee, Foster has also shared the stage with Loren Allred, Michael Bolton, and Peabo Bryson. Prior to McPhee's announcement, Allred took to Instagram earlier this week, calling the recent performances in Asia "incredible." 

"Can’t wait to continue on in Jakarta this week!!" Allred added at the time. 

The Britain's Got Talent and The Voice alum famously lent her voice to the hit song "Never Enough" in The Greatest Showman film, which was performed by Rebecca Ferguson's character Jenny Lind. Foster previously hosted Allred during his PBS special, An Intimate Evening With David Foster
