The singer explains she is “devastated”.

Supporting her excellent True EP, Solange Knowles had a busy summer of festival shows ahead of her, but today the singer has announced through Belgian festival Pukkelpop that she will be canceling all her international dates for the summer.

She wrote an apology via the festival’s website, and cited family as the main reason for the difficult decision:

“I am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the Summer. I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was…but between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/ recording my new record…I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family. I am so so sooooo sorry if Ive disappointed…… and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!”

On top of the Pukkelpop date, she has also canceled shows at Poland’s OFF Festival, Finland’s Flow, Smukfest in Denmark and Norway’s Øya. [via NME]
