Cat Power may cancel tourdates due to bankruptcy and poor health
Singer says she got sick the day after 'Sun' came out and has 'been struggling to keep in equilibrium'
Cat Power has said she may have to cancel her European tour.
The singer was due to come to the UK for a one-off show later this year at London's Roundhouse on December 12. It would be her first UK gig in over four years. The show is part of a full European run of shows that also includes gigs in Amsterdam, Koln, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Milan, Bologna, Zurich, Paris and Brussels.
Earlier today, she posted a photo onto her Instagram, with the message: "I may have to cancel my European tour due to bankruptcy and my health struggle with angioedema. I have not thrown in any towel, I am trying to figure out what best I can do."
She added: "Heart broken. Worked so hard. Got sick day after 'Sun' came out and been struggling to keep all points of me in equilibrium: mind, spirit, body healthy, centered and grounded. I am doing the best I can. I fucking love this planet. I refuse to give up. Though I may need to restrategise for my security and health."
Cat Power - real name Chan Marshall - released her ninth album 'Sun' this autumn. It follows the singer-songwriter's 2008 covers album 'Jukebox' and 2006's 'The Greatest' and was recorded in various locations including a studio built by Marshall in Malibu. Read NME's review of 'Sun' here.
