Paloma Faith cancels Australian tour

Paloma Faith has had to cancel her Australian tour due to illness.

The 'Only Love Can Hurt Like This' hitmaker has had to cut her concerts Down Under short and is "so sad" she hasn't been able to finish the sell-out dates due to the mystery sickness which resulted in her being hospitalised.

Paloma will fly back to the UK at the earliest opportunity to undergo tests to determine what is wrong with her.

Writing on Twitter, she revealed: "Australia! Im so sad I couldn't complete this tour. Im trying to get well enough2be able to fly home&have tests to see what the root cause is (sic)"

The 33-year-old singer believes her illness may have been caused by her tiring travel schedule for her tour.

She tweeted: "I don't think all the flying is very good for the body if I'm honest. I'm am so disappointed (sic)"

Paloma had performed three nights on her debut Australian tour but was taken ill ahead of her second show at Sydney's State Theatre on Tuesday (12.05.15). That date and her other axed shows at the AEC Theatre in Adelaide and at the Concert Hall in Perth are due to be rescheduled.

A statement from promoters Live Nation Australia stated: "Paloma hopes to return to Australia at her earliest opportunity to perform for her fans."
