The songstress announced she and Bleachers have canceled the remainder of their co-headlining "Charli and Jack do America Tour" tour, telling fans on Facebook, she needed to cut the tour short because of "personal reasons."
"These personal reasons include the fact that I need to be creative," she wrote. "Artists tour for a really really long time and I have been on the road for a while now, probably not as long as some, but for me it feels like an eternity. I am struggling to create whilst I'm on the road and that is making me unhappy."
Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff also explained the tour's cancellation, writing on Facebook, "love charli. she's my friend and i respect her as a person and as an artist. so here is what happened and i'm just gonna give you the actual story with no filter."
The musician went on to say he got a call from Charli's camp that she couldn't continue on the tour and it "came as a shock." Jack didn't want to cancel the tour, and tried to figure out a way to tour without her, but said, "It has been made clear that reworking the tour at this late stage without charli is not realistic."
He apologized profusely to fans for the tour cancellation, adding, "between refunding and re-ticketing and figuring out what to do with the venues there is just no way to make this work without it being sloppy. you guys ONLY deserve the best shows and im never going to give you anything but my best."
"i'm deeply sorry and extremely disappointed that a decision as big as a cancellation is out of my hands --- and you have my word that I will do everything in my power to make sure something like this never happens again in the future."
Jack did offer one positive note in the midst of all the chaos, though, saying, "The only piece of good news here is because of the cancellation I will be getting back into the studio a bit quicker than planned to work on the new Bleachers album for you all – promise to get back and tour on that ASAP."
Fingers crossed that Charli does the same.
