Utada Hikaru Cancels US Tour!?

12 05 2009

Sadly you read that correctly. Utada Hikaru has cancelled her US tour due to Pertonsillitis–a more severe form of tonsillitis which she says she gets once or twice a year. Here is her message to her disappointed fans.I suppose a lot of you have heard already; I’ve had to cancel the instore events that were scheduled for this week.

The reason is, I’m sick. I came down with a case of “peritonsillitis”—it’s basically a more severe form of tonsillitis, in which the area around the tonsils get badly swollen as well.

This happens this to me once or twice a year, when I’m extremely tired and my immune system gets in bad shape.

I was in bed this past week, making daily trips to the hospital to get intravenous administration of hardcore medication, and now I’m near the end of the recovering stage, but the problem with this condition is that I have to be very careful until it is completely take care of, as it tends to easily come back.

It was decided that I’m in no shape to be traveling and working for a while.

I’m trying to rest as much as possible, relax a little and take it easy.

I apologize to my fans who were looking forward to the events, and to everyone involved with organizing these events.

I’m glad she’s recovering—her health is more important, make sure you send your “Get well vibes” her way. I did read somewhere in a previous statement that they said she looks forward to reschedualing her tour. Could this be a sign of hope? Who knows. Get well Utada!!!
