Cat Power - Cat Power's European Tour In Doubt

Singer/songwriter Cat Power is considering axing her upcoming European tour due to health and financial worries.

The 40 year old suffers with tissue disorder angioedema, and the illness has made her rethink her forthcoming shows.

Power also admits money woes might impact on the European tour, which is due to kick off in Amsterdam, Netherlands on 26 November (12) and run into December (12).

In a post on her Instagram page, she writes, "I may have to cancel my European tour due to bankruptcy and my health struggle with angioedema. I have not thrown in any towel, I am trying to figure out what best I can do.

"Heart broken. Worked so hard. Got sick day after (latest album) Sun came out and been struggling to keep all points of me in equilibrium: mind, spirit, body healthy, centered (sic) and grounded. I am doing the best I can. I f**king love this planet. I refuse to give up. Though I may need to restrategise for my security and health."

Power is set to commence a string of shows in the U.S. on Friday (02Nov12).
