FLETCHER’s tour in Spain, whose official medium is JENESAISPOP, is now postponed to 2024: new dates will be announced shortly.

The singer was diagnosed with Lyme disease: “I’ve been getting sicker and sicker over the last few years, but I put it aside even though deep down I knew something was wrong,” she explains in a statement. “I have been undergoing treatment for the last few months, listening to doctors and trying to learn everything I can about this invisible disease.” Lyme disease has affected me in various ways and, above all, has taken a toll on my body. It has also raised concerns about my voice. “My heart goes out to this situation because singing is what I love most in this world.”
FLETCHER hopes to come back “bigger and better” “and most importantly stronger” in 2024, but says he will take the time necessary to recover. However, he will fulfill his upcoming appearances at the Music Midtown Festivals in Atlanta and All Things Go in Washington, DC: “These will be the last concerts I will give in 2023.”
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection and can be transmitted through the bite of an infected tick. It is known to have affected various pop stars who have made it famous: Shania Twain, Justin Bieber and Avril Lavigne are among the artists who suffer from this disease.
