GAYLE recently announced the cancellation of her North American tour, which was scheduled to kick off on Oct. 8 and continue through Nov. 11. The “abcdefu” singer released a statement on Monday (Sept. 19) via her Instagram stories, breaking the news to her fans.

“Thank you to everyone who bought tickets. It really does mean the world to me,” the singer wrote, informing ticket holders they will be refunded. “I’m learning how to be an adult and how best to do this new life. I love it so much and I’m trying to do it the best way I can,” she explained, while promising fans that she’ll still be playing festivals and creating new music.

She concluded her statement by reassuring everyone that she’s still “definitely not going to college.”

The month-long, 19-date run would have seen GAYLE tour the Southwest into the West coast with a dip into Canada and then on to the mid-Atlantic.

GAYLE’s next festival performance will be at Firefly in Delaware on Sept. 22. The singer will also appear at Las Vegas’ iHeartRadio festival on Sept. 24, Breakaway in Carolina on Oct. 1, as well as Austin City Limits on Oct. 7.
