Cat Power has expressed concerns that she may have to call off her entire December-time tour of Europe, including a show at London’s Roundhouse on 12 Dec. The ‘Sun’ soloist – real name Chan Marshall – cites bankruptcy and a “health struggle” with the skin condition angiodema as having the potential to prompt the tour cancellation.

Enclosing a capitalised note via Instagram, Marshall says: “I may have to cancel my European tour due to bankruptcy and my health struggle with angioedema. I have not thrown in any towel, I am trying to figure out what best I can do. Heart broken. Worked so hard. Got sick day after ‘Sun’ came out and been struggling to keep all points of me in equilibrium: mind, spirit, body healthy centered and grounded. I am doing the best I can. I fucking love this planet. I refuse to give up. Though I may need to restratagize for my security and health”.
