Lorde postpones Australian tour due to illness

Lorde's first real headlining tour of Australia was due to kick off in Melbourne on Thursday, but according to a statement from the 17 year old the tour has to be postponed due to an initially undisclosed illness.

In the statement Lorde is quoted as saying; ”It breaks my heart to have to postpone these shows as the band and I absolutely love playing to Australian crowds, and it was not a decision we made lightly. I know I need to focus on getting better in order to perform at my best. We’ll be with you as soon as we can, Aussies.”

According to Frontier Touring, the tour's promoter, refunds are available to fans although they advise holding onto to tickets as rescheduled dates will be announced soon; “While we encourage fans to hold on to their tickets the option to secure a refund is now available to you via the official ticketing agency you purchased from. Patrons will be able to secure a refund for the value of their tickets and fees and charges incurred in purchasing the ticket."

Although the statement revealed little about what is ailing her, Lorde herself later took to Twitter to further explain that she has been sidelined by a chest infection:
