Another musician is disappointing her fans due to an illness. Lorde was forced to postpone her Australian tour dates because she fell sick.

The Grammy-winner took to Twitter to announce the sad news, writing, “In case you missed the announcement earlier, i have had to postpone my australian shows because of a nasty chest infection and general ill health.”

“i am so so gutted to have to do this but my parents and my team stepped in telling me i needed a break after being non-stop since the grammys in January,” the 17-year-old added.

"We will 100% be back for this tour (most likely in november) so don't worry about that. i just need time to get back to full gollum girl fitness before i go out playing shows again. i'm truly sorry if i let you down or if you feel inconvenienced by this and i hope you can understand. X,” the “Royals” songstress continued.

Her first Aussie tour date was scheduled for Thursday (April 24) in Melbourne.
