US pop songstress Martika has announced to her fans via an email this morning that her upcoming tour to both Australia and New Zealand has been cancelled.
The tour, the singer’s first ever to Australia, was originally due to kick off in Sydney a few days ago, but “scheduling conflicts” in late August brought about changes to the tour (including the cancellation of dates in both Fremantle and Adelaide).
Martika’s visit was then due to kick off in Canberra next Saturday night, with five more dates following across the east coast.
In the message to fans today, Martika said, “My feelings are hurt, I am so angry, I can’t stop crying because I wanted to perform for my Australian and New Zealand fans and now this is cancelled.
“My live show is ready and I AM READY, so those that were excited to see me perform in Australia will get to see this show, just at a later date.
“I am now going to go drown myself in a chocolate sundae. I can’t begin to tell you how sorry, upset and angry I am,” she said.
Though there’s no word from the team at Frontier Touring just yet, refunds will no doubt be made available in the days ahead.
