Cat Power has postponed her European tour.

The singer had cast doubt over whether she would honour her European tour commitments last month, citing bankruptcy and poor health for reasons of a possible cancellation. She later confirmed that the tour will go ahead, but has now announced again that the jaunt will be postponed.

"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," she wrote in a lengthy post on her Instagram.

She added: "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," she wrote.

Power, real name Chan Marshall, was due to come to the UK for a one-off show later this year at London's Roundhouse on December 12. It would have been her first UK gig in over four years. The show was part of a full European run of shows that also included gigs in Amsterdam, Koln, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Milan, Bologna, Zurich, Paris and Brussels.

Cat Power 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.
