Janelle Monáe Cancels Aussie Tour

Janelle Monáe has cancelled her Australasian tour due to an undisclosed illness.

The R&B artist pulled out of Saturday’s concert in Melbourne and another on Monday in Sydney because of the mysterious illness.

The tour promoter, Live Nation Australasia, announced Tuesday the cancellation of the entire tour in Australia and New Zealand.

“Due to Janelle Monáe’s continuing illness it has been confirmed that the remainder of The Golden Electric Tour has been cancelled and there will be no rescheduled performances,” the brief statement reads.

Concerts were scheduled for Brisbane on Thursday; Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday; and back to Melbourne next Monday.

Monáe's five-city “Golden Electric Tour” of Australia and New Zealand is billed as a co-headlining trek with Kiwi artist Kimbra. The American artist fell ill just before she was due on stage at Melbourne’s The Forum. LN said Monáe stayed on in Melbourne on doctor’s orders. She hasn’t recovered her strength.

Monae’s tour is scheduled to return to the U.S. for a string of dates starting May 31 at the Roots Picnic in Philadelphia. It’s unclear whether the U.S. shows will be affected.
