Fans looking forward to seeing Tinashe’s local live dates next month will be left shattered today, with confirmation the US singer songwriter has cancelled her ‘Joyride’ world tour.
It was announced back in mid January that the singer would be in Australia in May for dates in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, but instead of pressing the flesh with her eager fans, she’s instead headed into the studio to continue the recording process for her next album.
A statement from the singer reads;
“It is with a heavy heart that I come with the news that due to unexpected recording commitments I need to postpone my upcoming international tour. Originally, I had planned this tour in support of Joyride, and as you know, the album has yet to be released.
“My two biggest loves are music and my fans, and it is never my intention to disappoint anyone. I know there has been some confusion in regards to my album’s release date. Trust me, I am as eager to get it out to you as you are to hear it. I will be wrapping up the finishing touches on Joyride by the end of May, and will be back on the road shortly thereafter to see all of you. If you know anything about me, you know this was the last thing I would ever want to do.
“I know there will be a lot of questions about this. I am going to do a live Q&A on my Facebook tomorrow to answer them all. Stay tuned for more info on that.
“Thank you for your love, support and patience always. It means the world to me.”
