Marina postpones Diamonds tour

Gigs & Festivals

Marina And The Diamonds

Marina And The Diamonds, aka Marina Diamandis, has had to delay the start date of her ‘Lonely Hearts Club’ tour, citing ongoing medical issues with her voice. The outing was meant to begin in London this Thursday following the release of the singer’s new album ‘Electra Heart’, but has instead been postponed to June. Tickets for all cancelled shows are still valid at their equivalent new dates.

Communicating news of the changes via this official statement, Marina says: “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 three 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”.

The amended dates are thus:

18 Jun: Norwich, Waterfront
20 Jun: Glasgow, ABC
21 Jun: Edinburgh, Queens Hall
22 Jun: Manchester, Cathedral
24 Jun: Leamington, Assembly Hall
25 Jun: London, Tabernacle
27 Jun: Cardiff, Corn Exchange
29 Jun: Birmingham, Institute
30 Jun: Sheffield, Leadmill
