Björk cancels Primavera headline slot
Already faced with several cancellations of tour dates that had already been scheduled, Björk has also cancelled her headlining sets at the Primavera Sound Festivals.
Her dates at the festivals were scheduled to take place in Barcelona, Spain, Porto and Portugal but due to an inflamed vocal cord nodule, she will not be able to make her previous arrangements.
The festival organizers are offering fans a refund to who purchased tickets before May 10th at the Barcelona and Porto locations, as Björk was scheduled to be the main headliner. In other news about the festival, Kings of Convenience have been added to the lineup.
The following is a statement from Primavera:
" After canceling some shows due to an inflamed nodule, Björk'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 Björk a quick and full recovery to continue enjoying her talent soon."
