Los Angeles: Singer Diana Krall has postponed her winter tour as she needs time to recuperate from a severe case of pneumonia.
The 49-year-old pianist announced that the tour has been rescheduled for next year. Her poor health has also forced the star to push back the release date of her new album, 'Wallflower', reported Aceshowbiz.
"I'm deeply saddened that I will have to postpone the release of my new album 'Wallflower' and the 'Wallflower US Fall Tour' until next year. I've been battling a case of pneumonia and am under doctor's orders to rest for the next few months in order to regain my strength and good health."
Originally planned to come out on October 21, the album will now arrive on February 3, 2015. New dates for the tour will be announced soon. Ticket holders will automatically be issued a refund for their ticket purchases.
Krall added that it is testing for her to not be able to perform and take out her album at the right time. "It is frustrating to be so close to the record release and have to delay but I am very proud of this record and want to be able to give you all my very best when we finally present this music to you. Thank you so much for your understanding."
