Amanda has put the tour on hold to stay in Boston with her best mate Anthony who is suffering from cancer. Anthony is in a serious stage of the disease and Amanda cannot be certain of the outcome at the time of the tour.

In a statement on her blog, Amanda wrote, “this is really, really hard for me to tell you. i feel like i’m letting a lot of people down.
if you know me, you’ll know that in 13 years of touring, i’ve almost never canceled a single engagement.
it’s not my style.
i take my professional commitments really seriously. even if i’m sick, i play.
but i also take my friendships really seriously.
this situation calls for no other solution.
my best friend is really sick and his future is uncertain.
so i am going to stay with him while he goes through this”.

Frontier Touring expected to reschedule the tour for September/October 2013.

Tickets already purchased will be valid for the shows later in the year or you may seek a refund from your ticketing agency.
