Solange Knowles Cancels European Tour Over ‘Mental/Physical Health’


Solange Knowles is finding it difficult to balance her personal life with her career.

Beyonce‘s equally-talented sister has cancelled the remainder of her European tour to instead focus on her next album, and her 8-year-old son Daniel, who’s about to start a new school. Solange was set to perform in Poland on August 1 through August 16 in London, according to her website.

“I am completely devastated to announce that I will be cancelling my international festival dates for the Summer,” Solange said in a statement. “I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was…but between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/ recording my new record…I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family. I am so so sooooo sorry if I’ve disappointed……. and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!”

Although her European fans are out of luck, Solange will still honor her five U.S. tour dates for 2013, including August 24 in Los Angeles and September 20 in Brooklyn.

When she does finally release her third album, it will be her first full-length since 2008’s Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams.
