She had no choice but to pull out of the final two dates in her Buenos Aires residency in Argentina and her headlining set at the Sonar Sao Paulo festival in Brazil last month April 12, 2012, after doctors found a nodule on her vocal cords.
A statement released by festival bosses on Wednesday May 9, 2012, reads:
“After canceling (sic) some shows due to an inflamed nodule, Bjork‘s specialist doctor advised her to keep resting and not to continue with the shows as they could bring a permanent damage to her voice. We are very sorry about any inconvenience this might bring, and appreciate your understanding. We wish Bjork a quick and full recovery to continue enjoying her talent soon.”
Fans have been offered refunds for the cancellation.
