Charli XCX postpones North American tour so she can open for Paramore in the UK

Charli XCX was to have started her North American tour next week — including shows next month at Gramercy Theater in NYC and the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park –but that has been postponed until the end of October/November. (Details to come.) Charli fessed up as to why on Facebook:

I’m going to be completely honest with you, the reason the tour has been postponed is because I have been offered to support Paramore throughout their UK tour, which is a really big deal for me as I haven’t ever really toured in the UK outside of London before. It’s scary and it’s quite weird but it’s also super exciting for me to finally be able to play shows in the country that I’m from.

I always feel so welcome in the USA and all of you guys have always been so cool and amazing to play too… So I am really so sad that I’m letting you down like this. But this is a big opportunity for me, one that people around me won’t let me decline. I am seriously so sorry to everyone I have let down, and I really do hope that you will be able to make the rescheduled dates (I’m figuring them out right now) and that you will enjoy the new music that is coming very very very soon. All I can promise you is that when I come back to the USA later on this year, the tour will be bigger and better… There’s going to be a lot of changes made and lots of new, exciting things.

Please don’t be too angry at me. I really do hate to let everyone down like this. I promise I’m going to make it up to you all. Xxxxxx
