In the latest chapter of the life of an artist who seems virtually unable to escape turmoil, Chan Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power) has announced via her Instagram that she may have to cancel her European tour, due to bankruptcy and a serious inflammatory condition called angioedema.
Marshall says she became sick just after the Sept. 4 release of Sun, her first album in six years, and one whose production was marked by difficulties both personal and creative. The singer was hospitalized in Miami last month, though it has not been reported whether that was because of angioedema or some other medical condition, and she has toured since. Marshall is still scheduled to finish out her current North American dates, which continue next with a show in Vancouver on Nov. 2. [via Spin]
Update: Marshall tweeted earlier today that she'll be going ahead with her European tour, albeit without her elaborate light show. "Hard money wasted," she writes. "#Goodbye #Gorilla."
