Cat Power Confirms European Tour To Go Ahead

Cat Power released her latest album ‘Sun’ earlier this year.

Earlier this week, Cat Power confirmed that her European tour may be jeopardy, due to health and financial reasons. However, she has now confirmed that the dates are set to go ahead.

Yesterday, Chan Marshall tweeted the news that the tour was still happening, with the statement: ‘EUROPEAN TOUR IS ON. WITHOUT STAGE PRESENTATION. HARD MONEY WASTED. #GOODBYE #GORILLA.’

It was also via her social networking sites that she first announced worries of a tour cancellation, posting a message on her instagram account, stating that she may be forced to cancel her tour due to ill health and apparent impending bankruptcy.

The message reads as follows: ‘I MAY HAVE TO CANCEL MY EUROPEAN TOUR DUE TO BANKRUPTCY & MY HEALTH STRUGGLE WITH ANGIOEDEMA. I HAVE NOT THROWN IN ANY TOWEL, I AM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT BEST I CAN DO. HEART BROKEN. WORKED SO HARD. GOT SICK DAY AFTER “SUN” CAME OUT & BEEN STRUGGLING TO KEEP ALL POINTS OF ME IN EQUILIBRIUM : MIND, SPIRIT, BODY HEALTHY CENTERED & GROUNDED. I AM DOING THE BEST I CAN. I FUCKING LOVE THIS PLANET. I REFUSE TO GIVE UP. THOUGH I MAY NEED TO RESTRATAGIZE FOR MY SECURITY & HEALTH.’
