'Tired' Lily Allen cancels US tour
NEW! LILY ALLEN HAS scrapped the rest of her North American tour, saying she is 'too tired' to complete it.
The singer announced her decision by posting a blog to fans on her MySpace page admitting she has 'never had to do any hard work before'.
The 21-year-old singer, who is the daughter of actor and hell-raiser Keith Allen, has been touring the US to promote her debut album Alright, Still, The Guardian reported.
She has been hinting that she might pull out of concert dates for some time, after being pictured in tears after the Brit awards in February when she was due to fly back to the US.
Earlier this month the singer, whose album is number 74 in the US billboard charts, wrote on her blog that she had been crying 'under the duvet' on the tour bus because she missed home so much.
'I have been on tour with this album for a year now,' she wrote on her MySpace page. 'I have fulfilled every commitment up to this point. I am tired, but more than that I don't think I have been giving my best performances recently.'
In a tongue in cheek aside, she added: 'I have cancelled many of my May and June tour commitments in America.
'The reason for this is because my mummy and daddy are very rich and I have never been in a position where I have actually had to do any hard work before.'
A total of 10 tour dates have been cancelled. She apologised to those with tickets and offered a full refund, saying the cancelled dates will be rescheduled for later in the year. (17 April 2007)
