Celebrated New Zealand songstress Lorde has announced the postponement of her Australian tour.
The run of shows was due to kick off on Thursday this week, but citing ill health, the singer will return home for “immediate rest and recuperation in order to regain complete health”.
“It breaks my heart to have to postpone these shows as the band and I absolutely love playing to Australian crowds, and it was not a decision we made lightly,” the singer said in a statement. “I know I need to focus on getting better in order to perform at my best. We’ll be with you as soon as we can, Aussies.”
Rescheduled dates will be announced shortly.
