On Thursday afternoon the singer took to Twitter to stem the rising tide of headlines that her European tour might be canceled with the missive, “EUROPEAN TOUR IS ON. WITHOUT STAGE PRESENTATION. HARD MONEY WASTED.”
A representative from her label, Matador Records, confirmed that nothing has been canceled. Neither Matador nor Power, known off-stage as Chan Marshall, had any additional comments. She’s been touring to support her latest album, Sun, which was released in September. Since then, she’s performed 10 dates across the U.S. and Canada, including a sold-out show in D.C.. The overseas portion of the tour is slated to begin this month in the Netherlands and will culminate in mid-December in Belgium.
Speculation about an aborted tour schedule started with Marshall. At close to 9 on the night before Halloween, she broadcast an ambiguous warning to her 40,000 followers on Twitter and Instagram. Accompanying a picture of what looked like an embellished Bible was the social-media caption, “I MAY HAVE TO CANCEL MY EUROPEAN TOUR DUE TO BANKRUPTCY & MY HEALTH STRUGGLE WITH ANGIOEDEMA.”
