Lykke Li Cancels Festival Dates, Takes a Break from Touring
But fans elsewhere are going to have to wait a bit if they were hoping to see the singer live. Li announced via Instagram that she plans to take a break from touring, starting by cancelling a handful of festival dates in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
She will no longer perform at the St. Jerome's Laneway Festival, which is slated to take place at a variety of locations across the aforementioned countries.
Sounding rather exhausted, Li explained that after seven years of constant touring her body was begging for a rest.
You can read her full message below.
I AM UTTERLY DEVASTATED, SOMETIMES WE PUSH AND PUSH BUT THE BODY SIMPLY WON'T FOLLOW. I GAVE IT ALL I HAD, MY BODY, HEART AND SOUL.
