Marina And The Diamonds - Postpones UK Tour Due To Illness

 As her album Electra Heart drops on the SCP desk, 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 after damaging her vocal cord. Marina has released the following statement...

“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,

We are so glad we got the new album to keep us ticking over until she is better, though sad for our UK friends who have to wait to see her in concert. Get well soon Marina.
