Héloïse Letissier, aka Chrstine and the Queens, has had to cancel this weekend's Coachella performance due to the death of her Mother.
Taking to Twitter to announce the news, Letissier revealed, "I lost my mother on Tuesday night. I came home to go through this ordeal with my loved ones - I won't be able to sing this Saturday."
Je n’arrive qu’à écrire des phrases très simples. J’ai perdu ma mère dans la nuit de mardi. Je suis rentrée pour traverser cette épreuve avec mes proches - je ne pourrai pas chanter ce samedi. Je vous embrasse.— Chris (@QueensChristine) April 18, 2019
Christine and the Queens also had to cancel her performance with Blood Orange at Santa Barbara Bowl in California last night (18 April).
Letissier has a busy festival season approaching, and is due to play London's All Points East on 26 May, the same day as James Blake, Metronomy, Kamasi Washington, Kurt Vile, Toro Y Moi, and many more.
