Anastacia has cancelled her planned European tour after being diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time.
The I’m Outta Love singer, who was first diagnosed with the disease in 2003, was due to kick off the tour with a performance in London on April 6.
She said: “I feel so awful to be letting down all my amazing fans who were looking forward to It’s A Man’s World Tour. It just breaks my heart to disappoint them.”
A spokesman for the star said she would continue writing and recording her new album and hoped to schedule a new tour as soon as possible.
He added that she aimed “to make a full recovery with the support of her family, friends and everyone around her” and asked for her privacy to be respected “during such a trying time”.
All tickets for the tour can be refunded from the point of purchase.
