Sinead O'Connor cancels 2012 tour due to breakdownPosted on 24/04/12
Irish singer Sinead O'Connor has canceled her tour commitments for 2012 due to her bipolar disorder. It was the singer itself who made the announcement yesterday, Monday, April 23, in a posting on her website.
Here's what she posted: "With enormous regret I must announce that I have to cancel all touring for the year as am very unwell due to bipolar disorder. As you all know I had a very serious breakdown between December and March and I had been advised by my doctor not to go on tour but didn't want to 'fail' or let anyone down as the tour was already booked to coincide with album release. So very stupidly I ignored his advice to my great detriment, attempting to be stronger than I actually am. I apologize sincerely for any difficulties this may cause. While touring will be cancelled I do hope and plan to appear at the Curtis Mayfield tribute in The Lincoln Centre in July."
Sinead O'Connor's last album, "How About I Be Me (and You Be You)", was very well received in February this year.
