Chan Marshall has decided to postpone the upcoming Cat Power tour due to her ongoing struggle with angioedema.
Troubled times for Chan Marshall. The American artist returned earlier this year, releasing the mature, emboldened collection 'Sun' to overwhelming critical acclaim. Since then, though, the singer's health has taken a turn for the worse.
Recently posting a message on Instagram, Chan Marshall revealed that she was suffering from angioedema in addition to severe finance issues. Now the singer has taken the step of postponing Cat Power's upcoming tour.
In another Instagram statement the singer wrote:
"(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."
