bjork biophilia Björk cancels festival dates due to vocal problems

Björk has canceled her upcoming headlining sets at Spain’s Primavera Sound and Portugal’s Optimus Primavera Sound due to ongoing problems with her vocal chords. According to an issued statement, Björk’s “doctor advised her to keep resting and not to continue with the shows as they could bring a permanent damage to her voice.”

Björk’s vocal problems also forced her to cancel a string of performances in South America last month, including her appearance at Sónar São Paulo. It’s unclear if further tour dates will be affected (you can see her upcoming schedule below.)
