Elly has been struggling with bronchitis for the last few months and after her show in LA contracted pharyngitis.
Her doctor has advised her to rest for three weeks so unfortunately she'll be unable to continue with her American tour.
We are endeavouring to re schedule as many of the cancelled shows for November as possible , an announcement will be made shortly.
