Stromae, a pop star, has canceled a string of tour dates across Europe, citing the need to focus on his health.
In a statement, the Belgian singer said he was canceling all shows until the end of May, which “fills me with sadness, but I have to admit my limits.”
He was scheduled to perform in nine cities across Europe, including his 2010 hit Alors On Danse.
Stromae, real name Paul van Haver, returned to the stage after a seven-year hiatus in 2022.
The 38-year-old has already canceled six concert dates in the last two weeks, with no specific medical reason given.
He previously ceased performing in 2015 when he canceled an African tour. He later explained that it was due to burnout and side effects from anti-malaria medication, telling the Guardian last year: “It was a really bad story.”
Stromae also addresses his mental health in the song L’Enfer – “Hell” – from his 2016 comeback album Multitude.
Until the end of May, his upcoming dates on the 2023 Multitude tour included stops in Amsterdam, London, Rome, Lyon, and Berlin.
He still has dates left on his tour after the end of May, including stops in his hometown of Brussels, Lille, and Paris.
“I have realized that my current health situation does not allow me to come and meet all of you at this time,” he wrote in a social media post on Tuesday.
“I regretfully share this news with you, which makes me sad, but I must admit my limitations.”
“With my family surrounding me, I need to take the time to improve in order to resume performing.”
He stated that he hoped to provide “more positive news very soon.”
