Kimya Dawson has had to cancel her Australian and New Zealand tour and will also no longer take part in the Bigsound conference as a speaker.
In a statement released by promoter Paul Curtis:
Unfortunately, due to family health matters outside of anyone’s control Kimya Dawson has to cancel the impending tour dates in Australia and New Zealand. Although another tour will be rescheduled in the future once return dates are possible, in the meantime please see the relevant venues and events for ticket refunds and/or replacement arrangements for the various September shows. Sincere apologies for any inconvenience and please stay tuned for news regarding future possibilities.
Kimya will also no longer be able to appear as a keynote speaker at the 2016 Big Sound music conference in Brisbane.
