Pop duo Icona Pop have scrapped a string of North American dates to allow singer Aino Jawo time to recover from an undisclosed illness.

Upcoming shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Seattle have been postponed.

A spokesperson for the duo tells WENN, “Aino Jawo has received strict orders from her doctor to rest in order to complete the last leg of their Iconic Tour tour next month. The tour will commence in Salt Lake City, Utah on September 9 and we are working hard to reschedule the postponed dates for later this year.”

Jawo’s bandmate Caroline Hjelt has released a statement, which reads:”We cannot tell you how sad we are and how much these shows meant to us. Our fans are so important to us and we live to perform on stage for you each night. We promise we’ll be back and will see you soon! In the meantime, please send lots of love and good energy Aino’s way!”
