The Swedish singer/songwriter Lykke Li has just announced that she will be taking a break from touring for awhile. Li dropped the news on Instagram and explained that the physical toll of a decade of touring had inflicted was just too much.
This unfortunately means that Li will cancel her headlining spots at Australia’s traveling St. Jerome Laneway Festivals. While this may be disappointing to fans that were hoping to see her in 2015, if you read further into her post she does say that this will only be a temporary rest. Li will return to the stage in the future once she has fully recharged.
