Ellie Goulding has been forced to cancel some festival appearances this weekend after being diagnosed with exhaustion.
Goulding was due to perform at the Positives Festival in Latvia on Friday (15/7) and the Ilosaarirock Festival on Saturday (16/7) but doctors have warned she is a risk of losing her voice for good if she doesn’t slow down.
“I’ve had to cancel some festivals this weekend because of exhaustion.” Ellie tells the Evening Standard.
“My doctor has said if I do this weekend my voice might not bounce back from it.”
Ellie, 29, has played 100 shows already this year as part of her Delirium World Tour, which kicked off in Hamburg in January.
But it was at Glastonbury last month, when she reached breaking point.
“I’m a hard worker. I don’t cancel anything unless I really need to, but my doctor said, ‘Ellie, your voice is going to burn out’.”
“Glastonbury was the point where I realised I was pretty exhausted.”
Despite this setback, Ellie remains upbeat. “It’s all good though — I’m feeling really positive about the rest of the year.”
Writing to fans on Twitter, Ellie explained the cancelled performances:
The Delirium World Tour continues until October 2016.
