Marina and the Diamonds concert chronology

The Lonely Hearts Club Tour is the second concert tour by Welsh singer-songwriter Marina and the Diamonds.

Background and development[edit]

The UK dates were announced on Valentine's Day[1] with the North American dates announced in April.[2] On 30 April 2012 it was announced that the UK segment of the tour has been rescheduled due to vocal cord condition of the artist to dates beginning on 18 June 2012.[3] The tour ran concurrent with Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto Tour for which Marina served as an opening act.[4] On Monday, 11 February 2013, Diamandis announced via her website and e-mail, that her European tour was cancelled.[5] On Saturday, 4 May, Diamandis debuted the track "Electra Heart", as an interlude to her final, closing leg of the tour.[6][7]

It is with huge regret that I have had to postpone my UK tour dates due to medical advice.... The good news is that we have managed to reschedule all the dates – except Leeds which is a festival – starting from the 18th June. I promise that these shows will be the best I have ever performed for you, as hopefully I will be 100% healthy! All existing tickets will be valid for the new dates and I also promise my Leeds Diamonds that I will see them in the Autumn.
