In a recent update, pop sensation FLETCHER, whose real name is Cari Elise Fletcher, made the difficult decision to postpone her highly anticipated “Girl of My Dreams” tour due to her ongoing battle with Lyme disease. This announcement comes as a blow to fans in the UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand who were eagerly awaiting her performances in support of her album.

The singer took to Instagram to share the news of her diagnosis, shedding light on her long-standing health struggles. She revealed that she had been battling increasing illness over the past couple of years but had pushed through, despite sensing that there was an underlying issue. In her Instagram post, FLETCHER said, “For the last few months, I’ve been receiving treatments, following doctor’s orders, and doing my best to learn more about this invisible illness.”

Lyme disease has not only taken a toll on FLETCHER’s physical well-being but has also affected her voice, which is her primary medium of expression. This debilitating illness has afflicted several celebrities in recent years, including Bella Hadid, Shania Twain, Kelly Osbourne, Avril Lavigne, and Alec Baldwin.

As a result of her diagnosis, FLETCHER made the difficult decision to postpone her tours in the UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. She also expressed her regret at having to cancel her scheduled appearance at the Corona Capital Festival. However, in her statement, she assured her fans that this hiatus was necessary for her to prioritise her health and well-being.

hi fletch fam, writing to you with an update today. as you may have noticed, i’ve been pretty quiet on socials lately and wanted to share why.

i have recently been diagnosed with Lyme Disease. i started to become increasingly ill over the last couple years and just kept pushing even though i knew there was something deeper going on. for the last few months i’ve been receiving treatments, following doctor’s orders and doing my best to learn more about this invisible illness. Lyme has affected me in a variety of ways and while it has not only taken a tremendous toll on my physical body, it has also caused concern for my voice as well. this has worn on my soul in a way that’s hard to even put words to as singing is the thing i love most in this world and my voice is my vessel for expression.

i am so sorry to say that I’ve decided to postpone my upcoming tours in EU/UK + AU/ NZ to next year and to cancel my appearance at Corona Capital in CDMX. apologies to those who learned this from their local venue prior to me posting. rescheduled EU / UK + AU/NZ dates will be available shortly on my website so please hold on to your tickets. original tickets will be honored at the new show dates and ticketholders will be contacted directly with more information. Music Midtown and All Things Go this month will be my last scheduled dates of 2023.

you all know how much i love performing and seeing you on the road and i’m truly heartbroken to let you down. i debated on whether or not i wanted to speak about this publicly, but i’ve always let you into my world through the good, the bad and the ugly and i didn’t want to stop sharing with you now. unfortunately, touring & singing every night just isn’t something my body is capable of in this moment and i want to show up for you all 100% and give you the best show that i know that i have in me and one that you deserve.

it’s not lost on me how incredibly fortunate i am to be able to take time off to rest, heal and take care of my voice and body. i am extremely grateful and i can’t wait to perform for you bigger and better…and most importantly, stronger than ever next year. but for now, i want to thank you for listening and thank you for all of your endless love and support.

i love you all so much.

please take good care of yourselves and i’ll see you soon.

Despite the disappointment of postponed tour dates, FLETCHER remains optimistic and promises her fans that she will return stronger than ever. During her time off, she intends to rest, heal, and take proactive measures to care for her body. She expressed deep gratitude for her fans’ unwavering support and love, saying, “I love you all so much. Please take good care of yourselves.”


FLETCHER’s dedication to her fans shines through in her decision to prioritise her health and well-being, and her admirers are undoubtedly eager to see her return to the stage stronger than ever before. As we wait for the postponed dates to come around, it gives us more of an excuse to prepare ourselves for her stage performances by listening to her latest album, “Girl Of My Dreams”, on repeat. If you turn up to her postponed gigs and don’t know every word of this album, that’s on you.
