Shygirl has canceled her upcoming co-headlining tour with Tinashe due to health issues.
The U.K. rapper took to social media on Friday (Oct. 20) to reveal that she was “heartbroken” to call off the 13-date North American trek because of a respiratory condition.
“Devastated to share that due to an ongoing respiratory condition I’ve been forced to make the difficult decision to cancel my appearances on the upcoming US tour on the advice of my doctor that I can no longer delay surgery,” Shygirl wrote on her.
The musician added, “My thoughts also go to Tinashe and Uniiqu3 as we were all so looking forward to this tour together. I am truly heartbroken by the situation and I hope to be back to see you all as soon as I am able.”
Shygirl’s joint tour with the R&B artist was set to launch next Saturday (Oct. 28) at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom and visit U.S. and Canadian cities like Toronto, New York, Atlanta, Dallas and Los Angeles before wrapping Nov. 18 at Oakland, Calif.’s Fox Theater. Uniiqu3 had been tapped as the opener.
Tinashe wrote in her own post that she was “beyond devastated” about the canceled tour, but teased that she may be hitting the road soon.
“THE SHOW MUST GO ON!” the singer-songwriter, formerly known as Twitter. “I’ve been working tirelessly with my team to put together my own tour which will be announced in the coming weeks.”
She added, “This new show is absolutely incredible and I can’t wait to show you what we have been working so hard on.”
Tinashe’s sixth album, BB/ANG3L, is scheduled for release on Sept. 8 with a seven-song track list that includes pre-release singles “Talk to Me Nice” and “Needs. BB/ANG3L follows her 2021 album, 333, which peaked at No. 175 on the Billboard 200 and spawned singles “Pasadena” (with Buddy) and “Bouncin’.”
