Thanks to a damaged vocal cord, Marina and the Diamonds has had to reschedule her UK tour dates that were originally set to begin on Thursday.

Marina explained that under doctor's orders she must hold off all performances until the end of May or otherwise risk suffering permanent damage to her vocal cords. She ushered an official statement on the day of the release of her second album Electra Heart, expressing her deep regret that the tour had to be cancelled, but announces on a brighter note that all Lonely Hearts Club tour dates have been fixed from June 18th to June 30th apart from the Live At Leeds Festival which cannot be rearranged.

Marina had been suffering vocal difficulties for three weeks before seeking medical advice. "I am distraught as I was so looking forward to seeing you all on The Lonely Hearts Club tour", she says.

"I promise that these shows will be the best I have ever performed for you, as hopefully I will be 100% healthy!" She says before promising an Autumn concert in Leeds.

New tour dates:
June 18th Norwich Waterfront
June 20th Glasgow ABC
June 21st Edinburgh Queens Hall
June 22nd Manchester Cathedral
June 24th Leamington Assembly Hall
June 25th London Tabernacle
June 27th Cardiff Corn Exchange
June 29th Birmingham Institute
June 30th Sheffield Leadmill
