Cat Power - Cat Power Postpones European Tour

Singer/songwriter Cat Power has postponed her upcoming European tour dates to next year (13) so she can focus on her health.

The 40 year old suffers from tissue disorder angioedema, and she revealed last month (Oct12) that the illness - along with financial worries - made her doubt her forthcoming shows, which were scheduled to begin after her current North America gigs.

She assured fans last week (ends04Nov12) she had decided to go ahead with the concerts, but on Monday (05Nov12) she told them she has decided to delay the dates to focus on her personal issues.

In a post on her Instagram page, she writes, "(Angioedema) can attack at random & is extremely frightening and dangerous when it hits my throat, windpipe, or tongue, and I've been hospitalised for it eight times since the first attack...

"Since then, I worked very very hard with all the best allergists, cardiologists, neurologists, accupuncurists (sic), homeopathists & renowned healers that I could find... so that I could do this American tour. I did my best & I want to do more & better.

"The American tour has been wonderful and amazing, and with me being unable to afford to bring my show with full production, (which I helped create) to Europe, financially, really dumped a huge additional amount of stress on me as I was and still am fighting trying to get tour support.

"I have to postpone my European tour until early next year, so I can return home and re-engage myself back into my health regimen. I f**king love my fans. Everything I do regarding my career, I first, think of my fans and this world we all share. But right now, I have to think of myself because I have to learn trough (sic) meditation & being clear from alcohol & cigarettes & red meat and lots of rest amongst my menagerie of doctors.... I have to now learn to heal myself. Through that, I can learn to help others to heal themselves."
