Back in January, Imogen Heap announced that she would be heading out on tour for the first time in eight years and would be stopping by South Africa for performances in both Cape Town and Johannesburg. However, the singer issued a statement today regrettably cancelling her tour due to “circumstances beyond our control”.

In a statement, Imogen says “I am very disappointed to share with my fans in South Africa that our upcoming concert dates in Cape Town and Johannesburg have had to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. I was really looking forward to coming back to South Africa to reconnect with the fans and to work with the music community toward better horizons. I hope I’ll be able to come in the not so distant future to make it up to everyone.”

Fans who have already bought tickets can get a full refund from Computicket.
