Lorde has been forced to postpone tour dates due to sickness.

The singer explained the situation on Twitter.

“In case you missed the announcement earlier, I have had to postpone my Australian shows because of a nasty chest infection and general ill health,” she explained.

She wrote, “I am so so gutted to have to do this but my parents and my team stepped in telling me I needed a break after being non-stop since the Grammys in January.”

“We will 100% be back for this tour (most likely in November) so don’t worry about that,” added Lorde. “I just need time to get back to full gollum girl fitness before I go out playing shows again.”

The performer said, “I’m truly sorry if I let you down or if you feel inconvenienced by this and I hope you can understand. x.”

Gossip Cop wishes Lorde a speedy recovery.
