Mabel has announced that she has had to reschedule a number of her ‘Mad Love Tour’ dates after coming down with illness. The singer has been forced to postpone a number of upcoming tour dates, throughout the UK and Ireland, this month (August).
The 23-year-old singer’s doctor has advised her against “performing or dancing for long periods of time.” This has meant that the singer has had to reschedule her August tour dates, in cities such as London, Liverpool, Newcastle, and Bristol, to November.
The announcement comes after Mabel also confirmed that she will not be performing at Boardmasters, on the 9th of August 2019, or Way Out West Festival, on the same weekend. All tickets for the rescheduled shows remain valid and you can purchase tickets for the shows here.
In a statement, on Facebook, Mabel, said: “So gutted to say that due to illness I won’t be able to play the dates of my ‘Mad Love Tour’ with HMV as my doctor has advised against me performing/dancing for long periods of time. The ‘Mad Love Tour’ will still be happening in November and all tickets are valid for the new dates. Thank you so much for understanding, love you guys and hope I get to make it up to you soon. Love, M x (sic)”
The ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ singer will now perform her ‘Mad Love Tour’, in November. This will see her Newcastle show moved to the 19th of November, Bristol on the 25th, London on the 26th, and Liverpool on the 28th of November 2019.
The announcement comes as the release of her album, ‘High Expectations’, which hit shelves today (August 02). The tour ‘Mad Love’ is in celebration of the release of her album ‘High Expectations’.
It also comes a week after Mabel opened up about suffering from “crippling” anxiety and depression, as a child and teenager. In the interview Mabel, said: “I got to about six years old when my parents realised it was crippling…That’s when music came into it and I started playing piano and journaling. I feel so lucky because I grew up with parents who understand it. They would listen to all my anxieties.
“Talking about it stopped me from catastrophising. They didn’t see it as a negative I needed to get rid of. Music has always been my therapy. The first 12 years of my musical relationship was very much for myself; it was like a journal. I was a teen who had a lot of anxiety and depression.”
