Grimes cancels European tour due to health issues
Following cancellation of Canadian tour, the electronic artist pulls UK and Europe dates
Grimes has cancelled her upcoming European tour due to health issues.
Following the cancellation of her Canadian tour because of a problem with her hearing, the singer has now been forced to pull all of her UK and European tour, which was due to begin at Bristol's Motion on November 13.
Posting on Twitter, Grimes wrote:
it's depressing to cancel more shows, but we have to cancel all Grimes dates in Europe due to health issues :(— Grimes(@Grimezsz) October 31, 2012
The Canadian electronic artist added that she would be "updating shortly about which shows will be rescheduled", suggesting that not all cancelled dates will be reorganised for a later date.
This comes just a few weeks after Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, cancelled shows in Winnipeg, Calgary and Saskatoon due to problems with her hearing. Boucher told her fans on Twitter that she was suffering from tinnitus – a severe ringing in the ear.
At the time of the cancelled Canada dates, she wrote: "Hey guys, so sorry 4 the cancelled shows. I'm having trouble with hearing loss, tinnitus & am trying to stay away from loud music 4 a bit."
