Marina And The Diamonds' Marina Diamandis has postponed her UK tour, which was due to start this Thursday in London, because of vocal problems.

The singer said in a statement that she was "distraught" at having to cancel her 'Lonely Hearts Club' tour, adding:

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 three 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.



All the dates have been rescheduled, apart from her planned headline performance at Live at Leeds festival on Monday May 5.

The rescheduled dates are as follows:

Norwich Waterfront (June 18)
Glasgow O2 ABC (20)
Edinburgh Queen's Hall (21)
Manchester Cathedral (22)
Leamington Spa Assembly (24)
London Tabernacle (25)
Cardiff Corn Exchange (27)
Birmingham Institute (29)
Sheffield Leadmill (30)



The announcement comes at Marina And The Dianonds release their new album 'Electra Heart', which is the follow-up to 2010's LP 'The Family Jewels' today.

The album includes a string of collaborations, including the likes of Diplo (Rolo Tomassi/MIA), Stargate (Rihanna/Chris Brown) and Guys Sigsworth (Bjork/Frou Frou).
