Solange Cancels International Tour Dates

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Solange cancels the international dates of her summer tour to focus on personal matters and the work of recording a new LP. The announcement comes ahead of her scheduled appearance at Belgium's Pukkelpop Festival; Solange broke the news via their website. The change of plans came with a note of apology from Solange, who expressed her regrets at having to disappoint fans who had anticipated her performances across Europe:

“I am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the Summer. 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. I am so so sooooo sorry if Ive disappointed…… and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!”

Though admittedly as disappointed about the decision as her fans must be, Solange seems pretty excited to make it up to them. Though a low point of the summer for some, the upside to her absence from the festival circuit is that new music is indeed on the way.
