Marina And The Diamonds have been forced to postpone their upcoming UK tour to prevent Marina Diamandis causing permanent damage to her vocal chords.

The ten date trek was due to start in London on Thursday (May 3) to coincide with the relase of the band’s new album, Electra Heart, which hit stores yesterday (Monday, Aoril 30).

“It is with huge regret that I have had to postpone my UK tour dates due to medical advice,” said the singer in an official statement. “I have been experiencing vocal problems for three weeks now and consequently today the doctor has told me that I cannot sing performance length shows while I undergo treatment, or I could cause permanent damage to my vocal chords.”

The tour has now been re-scheduled to June, apart from the Leeds date which was part of the Live At Leeds festival. Dates are as follows:

18 Norwich, Waterfront
20 Glasgow, ABC
21 Edinburgh, Queen’s Hall
22 Manchester, Cathedral
24 Leamington Spa, Assembly
25 London, Tabernacle
27 Cardiff, Corn Exchange
29 Birmingham, Institute
30 Sheffield, Leadmill
