Lorde postpones ‘Solar Power’ tour dates due to illness

"I’m so, so sorry. I don’t take postponing a show lightly"

Lorde has been forced to postpone some dates on her new ‘Solar Power’ tour due to illness.

Lorde was due to play Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday (April 15) but was forced to cancel due to laryngitis. Her show last night (April 16), which was due to take place at the  Anthem in Washington DC, has now also been cancelled.

In a statement to fans via email, Lorde wrote: “These past couple days I’ve been pushing through some horrendous laryngitis, and I regret to inform you that my voice hasn’t sufficiently recovered to be able to play the show for you.”


The statement continued: “I’m so, so sorry. I don’t take postponing a show lightly. I’ve tried everything, and unfortunately it’s physically impossible for me to sing much of the set. Please accept my sincere apologies. All well besides that, and absolutely frothing to party with you when I am able. Rescheduling info to come.”

The two dates have now been moved to August, with Connecticut’s show taking place on August 25 and Washington’s show a few days later on August 29. Tickets for the original shows will be valid for the new dates.

Lorde showcased several songs from her new album ‘Solar Power’ as she kicked off her 2022 world tour in Nashville earlier this month.

The New Zealand singer-songwriter premiered a number of tracks from her third studio LP at the Grand Ole Opry House including opener ‘The Path’, ‘Mood Ring’, ‘Hold No Grudge’ and ‘Oceanic Feeling’.

Lorde also performed the album’s title track as well as ‘Stoned At The Nail Salon’, ‘Fallen Fruit’, ‘California’, ‘Secrets From A Girl (Who’s Seen It All)’ and a piano driven version of ‘Dominoes’.

NME gave ‘Solar Power’ five stars upon its release in August 2021, writing that the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Melodrama’ “continues her winning streak, as she blazes a trail through the pop landscape with a beautiful paean to nature”.

Elsewhere, Lorde won Best Song In The World at the recent BandLab NME Awards 2022 for ‘Solar Power’.
