Marina and The Diamonds reschedule UK tour
The previously scheduled tour from Marina & The Diamonds that was scheduled to start this week, will now be starting in late June due to Marina Diamandis being given medical advice to rest her voice.
The following message was posted to her website, which you can see here.
"It is with huge regret that I have had to postpone my UK tour dates due to medical advice. I have been experiencing vocal problems for 3 weeks now and consequently today the Doctor has told me that I cannot sing performance length shows while I undergo treatment, or I could cause permanent damage to my vocal chords.
I am distraught as I was so looking forward to seeing you all on The Lonely Hearts Club tour. The good news is that we have managed to reschedule all the dates - except Leeds which is a festival - starting from the 18th June. I promise that these shows will be the best I have ever performed for you, as hopefully I will be 100% healthy! All existing tickets will be valid for the new dates and I also promise my Leeds Diamonds that I will see them in the Autumn.
As you know, today is the release date for Electra Heart and the people who buy my records and concert tickets mean the world to me. I hope you understand that not being able to play for you in May is very upsetting.
However, together, we will make the rescheduled June Lonely Hearts Club tour unforgettable.
With all my Love,

Ahead of its release on Monday you can listen to a six track sampler of Electra Heart by Marina and the Diamonds, which we called "a naturally glossy if not promising progression for the young songstress" - not bad, not amazing. [read more]
With approval coming from âThe Timesâ and âThe Flyâ 2010 Ones to Watch lists as well as a handful of acclaimed music blogs, Clock Opera has been stealthily building a name for itself amongst the critical music community. In the last few weeks, however, stealthy is no longer appropriate as they have stormed the internet with their remix of Marina and The Diamondsâ âI Am Not A Robotâ, which Marina has been quoted as saying is âbetter than the originalâ.
