Bad news for Charli XCX fans: the pop star has canceled the remaining leg of her “Charli and Jack Do America Tour” for this coming fall. Charli XCX and Bleachers (led, of course, by Jack Antonoff ) just finished their first run of dates, with the next series set to begin on September 14 in Boston, Massachusetts. She will still perform at Antonoff’s “Shadow of the City” festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey on September 19.
Charli cites personal reasons for not being able to continue the tour, but then goes on to list the reasons, defeating the typical use of saying “personal reasons” as an excuse for not having to actually give reasons.
Charli’s reasons are essentially that she wants to be creative and feels like the endless touring is not allowing her to write songs, thus making her unhappy. And if she is unhappy, she worries she cannot put on a show that people deserve.
