Irish singer -songwriter Sinead O’Connor has scraped her 2012 tour. The ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ singer will not be doing any of her upcoming tours and even has threatened to be done with showbusiness after she has had a meltdown just before a show in Munich, Germany on Saturday on April 21, 2012.
The Irish star has in fact opened up about her battles with mental illness, did post a statement on her web site over the weekend expressing to her fans do not come to her show and has spoke about getting a normal job.
In a tweet to fans late last week April 20. 2012, O’Connor had wrote,
“Am going home and canceling touring for the year. Doc had asked me not to tour but I thought was stronger than am.”
Her Twitter.com account has been taken offline.
A message O’Connor sent to fans before her web site was shut down has since been re-posted on a fansite. It reads:
“With enormous regret I must announce that I have to cancel all touring for the year as am very unwell due to bi polar disorder.
“As you all know I had a very serious breakdown between December and March and I had been advised by my doctor not to go on tour but didn’t want to ‘fail’ or let anyone down as the tour was already booked to coincide with album release. So very stupidly I ignored his advice to my great detriment, attempting to be stronger than I actually am.”
Ironically, the singer’s announcement came just hours after dates were added on her North American tour. Live Nation Canada promoters have confirmed the shows have been cancelled.
