Marina And The Diamonds postpones UK tour

On the day her sophomore effort Electra Heart is released, Marina And The Diamond has had to postpone her upcoming UK tour after receiving doctor's advice to rest her vocal chords.

In a statement published on Marina's official site, she explained:

"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.

As you know, today is the release date for Electra Heart and the people who buy my records and concert tickets mean the world to me. I hope you understand that not being able to play for you in May is very upsetting.

However, together, we will make the rescheduled June Lonely Hearts Club tour unforgettable.

With all my Love,


Full rescheduled dates are as follows:

June 18th | Norwich | Waterfront
June 20th | Glasgow | ABC
June 21st | Edinburgh | Queens Hall
