Lorde, the New Zealand singer-songwriter, has apologised profusely to her fans for disappointing them by cancelling two gigs in the United States due to “horrendous laryngitis.”

Furthermore, the singer wrote an email to fans that read: “These past couple days I’ve been pushing through some horrendous laryngitis, and I regret to inform you that my voice hasn’t sufficiently recovered to be able to play the show for you.”

The shows will now take place in August.
