Cat Power Postpones European Tour

Chan Marshall has had to push back her her November and December tour until 2013 owing to health issues.

Days since stating that her forthcoming Euoropean live dates would go ahead following some uncertainty last week, Cat Power has now been forced to postpone the whole tour.

The artist, who released full-length ‘Sun’ back in September, had said a week ago that she may be forced to cancel the tour owing to health struggles - before stating that the dates would go ahead.

However Chan Marshall has now confirmed that the European tour - which was set to kick off in Amsterdam on 26th November and continue throughout December - would have to be postponed until next year for health reasons.

Posting on Instagram, she wrote:

“EUROPEAN TOUR : As many of my fans know, I’ve been suffering from angioedema. It can attack at random & is extremely frightening and dangerous when it hits my throat, windpipe, or tongue, and I’ve been hospitalized for it eight times since the first attack, 2 DAYS AFTER MY RECORD RELEASE.

Since then, I worked very very hard with all the best allergists, cardiologists, neurologists, accupuncurists, homeopathists & renowned healers that I could find, Body Talk, Reiki, Yoga, etc. so that I COULD DO THIS AMERICAN TOUR. I did my best & I want to do MORE & BETTER.

The American tour has been wonderful and amazing, and with me being unable to AFFORD to bring my show with full production, (which i helped create) to Europe, financially, really dumped a huge additional amount of stress on me as i was and still am fighting trying to get tour support.

I have to postpone my European tour until early next year, so I can return home and re-engage myself back into my health regimen. I fucking love my fans. Everything I do regarding my career, I FIRST, think of my fans and this world we all share.

But right now, I HAVE TO think of myself because I have to learn trough meditation & being clear from alcohol & cigarettes & red meat and lots of rest amongst my menagerie of doctors…. I have to think of MYSELF right now because I have to now LEARN to heal myself. Through that, I can learn to help others to heal themselves.

I know my fans will understand and I thank them and love them much more than I believe they could ever know. I am here and do what I do, for them and because of them. You have kept me alive this long, I refuse to give up on you OR MYSELF. And that goes to all the journalists who write a true story as well.

To you all in the struggle. May light be on your path at every step. XXx Love always .”
