Anyone who has booked tickets to see Marina and the Diamonds had better re-check their diaries, as it was announced today Marina has had to cancel the existing dates on Doctors orders, due to damaged vocal chords.
Marina said (quietly, I’m guessing…)
“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 3 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.
I am distraught as I was so looking forward to seeing you all on The Lonely Hearts Club tour. The good news is that we have managed to reschedule all the dates – except Leeds which is a festival – starting from the 18th June. I promise that these shows will be the best I have ever performed for you, as hopefully I will be 100% healthy! All existing tickets will be valid for the new dates and I also promise my Leeds Diamonds that I will see them in the Autumn.”
The London Tabernacle date has been rescheduled for June 25th.
