Solange Knowles Cancels Tour Dates Over “Mental and Physical” Health Issues

Via DailyMail reports:

Solange Knowles has been forced to cancel her European tour dates after admitting that she has become overwhelmed with her commitments.

The 27-year-old singer has pulled out of her summer music festival performances in order to spend more time with her family and work on new material.

Solange is still planning to play all of her US dates this year but has admitted that she needs to scrap her appearances in Europe for her ‘mental and physical health.’

In a statement, Beyoncé’s younger sister said that she was ‘devastated’ by the decision that she had to make but couldn’t juggle so many commitments.


‘I am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the Summer,’ she wrote. I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was… but between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/ recording my new record…I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family,’ she added.

I am so so sooooo sorry if Ive disappointed…… and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!’

Solange has already made a number of appearances in the UK this year, including a set at Glastonbury, but has recently returned to the US to be with her family.

Ahead of the statement, she had already pulled out of two UK appearances, at Koko in London and Yorkshire’s Beacons festival.

The Losing You singer has eight-year-old son Daniel to look after and is currently in a relationship with music video director Alan Ferguson, having just moved to New York from Los Angeles.


She will be putting all of her efforts into recording her third studio album.

Solange you got this boo! Take your time, and remain true to yourself.
