Charli XCX cancels November tour

Charli XCX

FAO anyone going/wanting to go to alt popstar Charli XCX’s eight-date solo tour, which is meant to commence on 5 Nov…. she’s cancelled it, sorry. Devastating as that is, it’s apparently all for the greater good of Charli’s debut LP, so please don’t be too mad at her.

By way of explanation for voiding the shows, XCX tweets/shouts: “TO ALL MY UK FANS! I AM SO SORRY I CANCELLED MY NOVEMBER UK TOUR – THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT I HAVE TO FINISH MY ALBUM…”

She adds: “THIS WILL REALLY BENEFIT MY ALBUM… I WANT TO MAKE THE BEST RECORD POSSIBLE FOR U! THEN DO THE BEST TOUR POSSIBLE FOR U!!!”

Charli assures fans that they’ll receive all monies paid for tickets back at point of purchase, also promising revised dates and a Halloween mixtape asap.

In the mean time, Elle UK commissioned Charli and her precarious boots to do a minimal version of her new single ‘She’s The One’, and this is what happened.
