Chloe Moriondo has cancelled her upcoming UK and European tour, which was due to take place in early 2023.
The singer said that the cost of touring was the reason behind the developments. Moriondo was set to play in support of her recent third album ‘Suckerpunch’ with dates including a show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
Taking to Twitter to announce the news, Moriondo said: “hi. i would like to say here w my words that uk/eu dates are being canceled due to the cost of touring. it makes me unbelievably sad especially for the overdue cities i was supposed to play.
“i’m so sorry and i wish i could come see you. i hope u know that if i could i would.”
In a subsequent tweet, Moriondo added: “though i’m rly very sad, i am going to hold on to and greatly value the stretch of time at home i’ll have due to this cancellation. i’m really excited to find who i am again- i can’t wait to be back online as frequently as i used to be and introduce u once i meet her. i loveu.”
Moriondo is not the only artist to have cancelled tours recently due to logistical and financial issues. In September, Santigold cancelled her upcoming Holified tour, citing difficulties with inflation and the changing landscape of post-pandemic music touring, while Lorde discussed the current economic realities of touring in a newsletter sent to fans last month. Animal Collective and Christopher Taylor (aka SOHN) have also cancelled tours recently for similar reasons.
