Little Simz has rescheduled her upcoming North American shows due to the cost of touring.
The run was supposed to start on 1st May in Portland, Oregon, but in a statement shared to social media the BRIT-winner explained they will have to be rescheduled.
“Hey guys, due to unforeseen circumstances I’ve been left with no option but to reschedule my US tour,” Simz explains. “I take my live shows seriously and would only want to give you guys nothing but the best of me. Being an independent artist, I pay for everything encompassing my live performances out of my own pocket and touring the US for a month would leave me in a huge deficit.”
“As much as this pains me to not see you at this time, I’m just not able to put myself through that mental stress,” she continues. “It’s important for me to speak my truth about this and be honest. I appreciate the love and excitement you guys have for seeing me live. Rest assured I will be there soon, back bigger and better.”
“For now I’m creating and working on art that I’m so excited about. Music of course but other things too; all levelling to greater heights. A message to all artists and creatives, know your worth and stick to your guns. Love you all.”
