Just 24 dates through her JOYRIDE world tour, Tinashe has cancelled the remaining international portion of the 44-date road trip. She’ll complete her North American dates (the last one is April 10 in Vancouver), then she “will be wrapping up the finishing touches on Joyride by the end of May.”
Her sophomore album, JOYRIDE, has been rumored to arrive for months now. We assumed it would arrive before her international tour in support of the project started in February, but it never came.
The Lexington native wrote a message on her Facebook announcing the cancellation:
It is with a heavy heart that I come with the news that due to unexpected recording commitments I need to postpone my upcoming international tour. Originally, I had planned this tour in support of Joyride, and as you know, the album has yet to be released.
My two biggest loves are music and my fans, and it is never my intention to disappoint anyone. I know there has been some confusion in regards to my album’s release date. Trust me, I am as eager to get it out to you as you are to hear it. I will be wrapping up the finishing touches on Joyride by the end of May, and will be back on the road shortly thereafter to see all of you. If you know anything about me, you know this was the last thing I would ever want to do.
I know there will be a lot of questions about this. I am going to do a live Q&A on my Facebook tomorrow to answer them all. Stay tuned for more info on that.
Thank you for your love, support and patience always. It means the world to me.
There’s no word on when the international dates will be rescheduled. We’ll keep you updated on the progress of JOYRIDE.
