Dear {name},

I am deeply saddened and very frustrated to announce that I have no choice but to cancel my UK tour which is due to begin this week.

My hand which sustained an injury and subsequent bone infection in Jan 21 has flared back up and I require urgent surgery to remove a piece of wood still in there.

Why it's flared up this last week and been fine for the previous 12 months, I have no idea.

It's made the past 3 shows with Liz very painful and I probably shouldn't have played them but I did.

I hate cancelling shows. Especially when this, my first UK headline tour was going to be such an amazing time with so many of you making the effort to come.

I understand the trouble many of you went to, organising travel and planning roadtrips and this decision was a very difficult one to make.

However, the risk of long term damage combined with the inability to actually play well made it the right one.

There'll be more shows but I only have two hands. 

Thank you for your understanding and love, ill be back out there ASAP. 

In the meantime, I'll share this journey with you.

Lotsa Love,



P.S please don't share this publicly, I am still in process of officially cancelling with promoters and extended team but wanted to let you know as soon as the decision was made.

Tickets will be refunded, any probs let me know. 

We acknowledge the First people of this powerful place and their sovereignty. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
May we walk together in peace, respect and learning.
