Icelandic singer Björk has cancelled several more appearances on her recent tour due to afflictions with an inflamed vocal cord nodule. These cancellations include headlining spots at Sónar São Paulo in Brazil and Primavera Sound festivals in Europe.

From the Björk camp:

After canceling some shows due to an inflamed nodule, Björk’s specialist doctor advised her to keep resting and not to continue with the shows as they could bring a permanent damage to her voice. – Primavera Sounds Festival

We wish Björk a quick and full recovery.

Festival organizers of Primavera are offering refunds to fans as a result of the news.
