Little Simz released one of the best albums of 2021, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, in September, and we were highly anticipating her North American tour supporting it, which was scheduled to begin in May. Because of "unforeseen circumstances," however, she's canceled the dates; she says they will be rescheduled.

"Hey guys, due to unforeseen circumstances I’ve been left with no option but to reschedule my US tour," a statement she posted on social media reads. "I take my live shows seriously and would only want to give you guys nothing but the best of me. Being an independent artist, I pay for everything encompassing my live performances out of my own pocket and touring the US for a month would leave me in a huge deficit."

The statement continues:

As much as this pains me to not see you at this time, I’m just not able to put myself through that mental stress. It’s important for me to speak my truth about this and be honest. I appreciate the love and excitement you guys have for seeing me live. Rest assured I will be there soon, back bigger and better.

For now I’m creating and working on art that I’m so excited about. Music of course but other things too; all levelling to greater heights. A message to all artists and creatives, know your worth and stick to your guns. Love you all.

Bummer news, hopefully she'll reschedule soon!
