Christine and the Queens, also known as Redcar, has cancelled all remaining tour dates for 2023 due to illness.

“Red was taken ill today [16 October] and on advice of doctors forced to make the difficult decision to cancel all remaining tour dates for 2023,” reads a post on Christine and the Queens’ official Instagram account. “It’s not yet known what illness forced the cancellation.”

The French singer was scheduled to perform seven more shows in North America before wrapping the leg on 26 October.
