Marina and the Diamonds postpones UK tour due to illness (see rescheduled dates)
aaamusic | On 30, Apr 2012
Marina and the Diamonds has had to unfortunately postpone her UK tour, due to commence this Thursday in London, due to urgent doctors’ orders received today.
Due to a damaged vocal cord which Marina became aware of three weeks ago and has suffered from vocal problems since, her doctor has advised her to not to sing until the end of May while she undergoes treatment. The full statement from Marina is below;
“It is with huge regret that I have had to postpone my UK tour dates due to medical advice. I have been experiencing vocal problems for 3 weeks now and consequently today the Doctor has told me that I cannot sing performance length shows while I undergo treatment, or I could cause permanent damage to my vocal chords.
I am distraught as I was so looking forward to seeing you all on The Lonely Hearts Club tour. The good news is that we have managed to reschedule all the dates – except Leeds which is a festival – starting from the 18th June. I promise that these shows will be the best I have ever performed for you, as hopefully I will be 100% healthy! All existing tickets will be valid for the new dates and I also promise my Leeds Diamonds that I will see them in the Autumn.
As you know, today is the release date for Electra Heart and the people who buy my records and concert tickets mean the world to me. I hope you understand that not being able to play for you in May is very upsetting.
However, together, we will make the rescheduled June Lonely Hearts Club tour unforgettable.
With all my Love,

June 18th – Norwich, Waterfront
