Nouvelles annulations pour la tournée Biophilia (maj 10/05)

Après l’annulation de la résidence en Argentine et celle du Sónar Festival à São Paulo, nouvel abandon pour les 2 dates prévues les 2 et 9 juin au festival Primavera en Espagne et au Portugal. Björk doit continuer à reposer sa voix et ne pourra par conséquent assurer les concerts à Barcelone et à Porto.

Voici le communiqué officiel du festival :

After canceling some shows due to an inflamed nodule, Björk’s specialist doctor advised her to keep resting and not to continue with the shows as they could bring a permanent damage to her voice.

We are very sorry about any inconvenience this might bring, and appreciate your understanding.

We wish Björk a quick and full recovery to continue enjoying her talent soon.

Les détenteurs d’un billet pourront se faire rembourser. Les modalités sont à suivre sur

Le concert prévu en Hongrie le 12 juillet est lui aussi annulé officiellement.

Voici le communiqué officiel du festival :

„We all hope she will get better soon and then we can make up for the cancelled show. With just 10 weeks to go till the festival our colleagues are working hard to find a replacement for this year’s Sunday headliner act, so we hope to come up with good news within a few days” – said Norbert Lobenwein, co-organizer of Heineken Balaton Sound.

Le site officiel a publié un texte de Björk (reproduit ci-dessous) au sujet de ces annulations. On y apprend que la date au Afisha Picnic Festival en Russie le 21 juillet est annulée.

Björk est plutôt confiante sur le fait de pouvoir chanter "pleinement guérie" à partir de mi-juin, les annulations intervenant uniquement pour alléger son programme et préserver sa voix.

hi folks

i am sorry to announce I will not be able to play primavera sound (spain) , optimus primavera sound (portugal) , balaton sound (hungary) and afisha picnic (russia) 2012 .

after 2 weeks of voice rest i went to my vocal doctor and she came to this conclusion : i need to rest for 6 more weeks . the good news is that we both feel pretty confident i can start singing fully healed in the middle of june .

in the beginning of biophilia , we estimated that doing 3 residencies a year with couple of months between would be a rhythm my chords could take . then i got overexcited and when we threw the festivals into the mix and only leaving 2 weeks between new york shows and south america was too eager beaver ... the drop that filled the meter ...

i am very sorry and embarrassed about having to cancel things and having promised things and then not being able to keep my word , truly breaks my heart . especially to people who have already bought tickets .

meanwhile biophilia has become its own feisty plant growing all different directions . and it isnt all bad . it has a lot of fun sides like for example the educational angle : reykjavík´s and buenos aires city school curriculums have now embraced biophilia educational program into their schools and we are partnering with the new york public library and the children’s museum of manhattan to launch biophilia as learning resource for new york’s children in july 2012 .

but in the meantime , i will rest and reschedule and make a promise to my chords and especially those who want to listen to them that even though my mind and my intention gets overexcited and runs ahead , i will from now on allow breaks between "legs" of tours to reassemble ...

because like that i can give better

warmth , björk.
