Allie X has cancelled her upcoming US tour dates in April and May, revealing that the "same autoimmune illness that inspired Cape God has flared up."

Next month Allie X was due to tour the US, beginning in San Francisco on 9 April and ending in LA on 14 May, but this afternoon (28 March) the artist shared a statement revealing her tour has been cancelled.

Allie X wrote on Twitter, "I’m terribly saddened to announce that I will be canceling my upcoming US tour. Ironically, the same autoimmune illness that inspired Cape God has flared up and has left me bedridden and under a doctor’s care. Thank you for holding space for an artist like me."

The tweet also included a note from Allie X, which saw her write, "I don't have much energy so just gotta keep this direct. I'm in the hospital. Sicker th[a]n I've been in 20 years and just in time for the tour I've been planning for my whole life. Sad and ironic. I know that some of my fans have chronic illness and understand this whole thing really well."

Allie X went on to reveal that sometimes her "body just stops working," and all she can do is "lie still, breathe through the pain and wait the weeks or months it takes to pass until I can work my limp up to run again."

She also apologised to "anyone that I've disappointed," and added that she hopes to "make it up with my recorded music and live performances when they become feasible again."

Ticket refunds for Allie X's US tour are available at the point of purchase.
