Lana Del Rey Cancels European and UK tour
Lana Del Rey has cancelled her European and UK tour "due to illness".
The singer-songwriter revealed that she has "totally lost" her "singing voice" and been advised to take four weeks off by doctors as a result.
The EU leg of her tour - in support of her latest LP Norman Fucking Rockwell - was due to start on February 21 in Amsterdam, ending on March 3 in Cologne, whilst the UK dates would have seen the star play London on February 25, and Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham.
In a statement shared with The O2 arena, Del Rey, who is devastated to let her fans down, said:
“Sorry to let everyone down so last minute but this illness has taken me by surprise and have totally lost my singing voice. Dr has advised 4 weeks off for the moment. I hate to let everyone down but I need to get well. Love Lana."
Those who had purchased tickets will be able to receive a refund a their point of purchase.
The tour cancellation comes after Del Rey was confirmed to play the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. The 34-year-old singer is due to perform at the UK's biggest festival this June.
Organiser, Emily Eavis, shared: "I'm very pleased to tell you that we have the most incredible Lana Del Rey. I believe it's her only UK festival, which is even better.
"She's nearly played a few times actually, and for one reason or another it hasn't happened, and she was one of our very first confirmations for this year."
She said: "It's amazing, one of the best records of last year and for me a real coup getting her. She's playing the Pyramid on Friday, underneath our headliner."
The much-anticipated festival - which is being staged between June 24 and June 28 - is also set to feature the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Diana Ross.
