Fans who purchased tickets for the canceled concerts can get refunds. Refund information are available from the tour website, Mizuki's official website, ticket retailers, and other venues on Friday.
Mizuki had previously canceled her June 22 concert in Kitakyūshū, Fukuoka. After her June 21 concert at the same venue, her vocal cords were inflamed and she lost her voice. Mizuki visited a specialist who told her to get three days of complete rest. However, when she visited the doctor again on June 26, she was diagnosed again with acute vocal cord inflammation as well as upper respiratory tract inflammation, and was told she needs to continue to rest. Her staff then decided to cancel the Yamaguchi and Tottori concerts.
Snack food maker Calbee held a campaign for a chance to win backstage passes for the final "Nana Mizuki Live Flight 2014" concert in Yokohama, Kanagawa on August 3. Police in Hyogo prefecture arrested a 25-year-old office worker who bought 500 pounds of the campaign's potato chips and allegedly dumped the unwanted snacks in two cities. The voice actress was "deeply saddened by the event" and used the situation to promote the Marugomi trash pickup project.
The "Nana Mizuki Live Flight 2014" tour began on June 1 and runs until August 3.
Mizuki's anime roles include Naruto's Hinata, Blood-C's Saya, and Minami-ke's Tōma. She has performed theme songs for anime such as Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Dog Days, and Senki Zesshō Symphogear. Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs named Mizuki Rookie of the Year in the Popular Entertainment division of the 64th Annual Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT) Art Encouragement Prizes in March.
