Janelle Monae scraps Australasian tour due to illness

Singer Janelle Monae has axed her entire Australasian tour after falling ill.

The R&B sensation had teamed up with singer Kimbra for the Golden Electric Tour, which kicked off Down Under earlier this month (May14).

She called off shows in Melbourne on Saturday (17May14) and Sydney on Monday (19May14) as she battled a mystery illness, but now promoters confirm all dates across Australia and New Zealand have been cancelled.

The statement from Live Nation reads, "Due to Janelle Monae's continuing illness it has been confirmed that the remainder of The Golden Electric Tour has been cancelled and there will be no rescheduled performances."
