Sad news for Tinashe fans: the recording artist as unfortunately cancelled her entire Joyride World Tour, including upcoming dates in Australia and New Zealand. The singer has apologised to fans, claiming that she needs to finish work on her upcoming album before she can take it on tour, which makes perfect sense.
Tinashe released the following statement on her Facebook:
“It is with a heavy heart that I come with the news that due to unexpected recording commitments I need to postpone my upcoming international tour. Originally, I had planned this tour in support of Joyride, and as you know, the album has yet to be released.
“My two biggest loves are music and my fans, and it is never my intention to disappoint anyone. I know there has been some confusion in regards to my album’s release date. Trust me, I am as eager to get it out to you as you are to hear it. I will be wrapping up the finishing touches on Joyride by the end of May, and will be back on the road shortly thereafter to see all of you. If you know anything about me, you know this was the last thing I would ever want to do.
“I know there will be a lot of questions about this. I am going to do a live Q&A on my Facebook tomorrow to answer them all. Stay tuned for more info on that.
“Thank you for your love, support and patience always. It means the world to me”.
Tinashe was supposed to visit Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth towards the end of May, but these dates will no doubt be rescheduled for later in the year or 2017. Live Nation have announced that refunds will be available from the point of purchase.
Tinashe last visited Australia in early 2015. Read our interview here: “I’m not just a cute girl signed to a record label”.
