Due to Health Issues, Lykke Li has announced the cancellation of the remainder of her tour dates. These dates include appearances in Australia, Singapore, and New Zealand.
Lykke Li had performances booked from January 24 to February 8. The singer has taken to social media to express her sadness due to the cancellations. When the news broke, Li wrote the following on Instagram:
“I am utterly devastated, sometimes we push and push b the body simply won’t follow. I gave it all I had, my body, heart, and soul. After 7 years of touring my health is screaming/begging for me to listen/heal/slow down. Thank you so much for understanding. Thank you for listening to my bleeding heart and watching me dance in the dark these past years. I love you. I will come back stronger, but for now my loves, I have to rest. U can’t always “win”… take care of yourselves!!! You mean the world to me. Choose light and Life! Life is ebb n flow, high n low. But we keep on. I will miss you so. X”
According to Rolling Stone, Li made the following official statement once it was clear that the singer would need to cancel multiple city dates:
“I’m incredibly sorry to announce that I’m no longer able to play in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore for Laneway Festival. It’s been a long time coming, but unfortunately tour life has caught up with me and it’s been recommended that I take a break. I’m devastated, but know I will return.”
The tour dates were in support of Li’s latest album, I Never Learn. Li has been on tour for the album since early August. While health issues are noted as the cause for the canceled tour, there is no further information on Lykke Li’s exact condition. Further information on Lykke Li can be found on her official website.
