Stromae cancels performances until the end of May for health reasons

Belgian music sensation Stromae has cancelled all upcoming performances outside Belgium until the end of May to focus on his health. This was confirmed by his management on Tuesday.

Fifteen concerts have been cancelled, including in Amsterdam, London, Berlin and Rome. Six of his concerts in France were also cancelled in recent weeks.

"I hope to be able to give you more positive news very soon"

"My current health state does not allow me to come and meet all of you at the moment," Stromae said in a statement. "I regretfully share this news with you, but I have to admit my limits. Surrounded by my family, I have to take the time to get better in order to resume performing. I hope to be able to give you more positive news very soon."

Scheduled performances at Paleis 12, Brussels, on 1, 2 and 3 June are still due to take place.

The 38-year-old from Brussels returned to the stage in 2022 after a long hiatus due to burnout and released the album Multitude the same year. He is one of the best-selling French-speaking artists in the world.
