I'm devastated.

I understand the health issue and i already written here that i was worried about what was happening. If Chan's life or career are in jeopardy, i would welcome the cancellation with relief.
Once i said that, i must admit that i don't completely understand the bankruptcy part. Does it mean that the Tour costs too much money? Question

Me too...So sad. I was so happy to see her twice and in other cities than mine. Sad

For what she said about the money, do you think that this kind of show with lights and pictures is very expensive? From what I saw on instagram she's doing her merchandizing (t-shirts)herself because she has no money.

Honestly i'm puzzled. If money is the problem, sold out (or almost sold out) shows should solve it. scratch

In fact Chan's message is scaring me. No

Non mais au-delà de la possible annulation dont je parviendrai à me remettre, ce qui fait chier c'est de s'apercevoir que pour Chan en fait ça ne va pas du tout et de n'avoir aucune prise là-dessus.

Oui, en effet. Ca doit être super usant pour elle et très très frustrant. On ne peut qu'être inquiets pour elle. Envoyons lui toutes nos pensées positives, malheureusement c'est tout ce qu'on peut faire.

Sorry but I find this "bankruptcy" claim a little odd... that would only make sense if she were personally renting all the venues and selling the tickets herself. She works with Ground Control touring in the US and I am sure European booking agents as well. It seems like this may be a dramatic way of asking for a higher cut of the Euro tour profits. A previous message connected her "bankruptcy" with her illness, but so far it hasn't prevented her from doing any of the US shows except for Phladelphia. It is clear she does not have a manager or else these types of messages to her fans and the media would be filtered more carefully.

It's indeed something that i still don't understand.
Normally, Tour=Money, so cancelling it doesn't make sense for this reason, unless the tickets are selling poorly, which is not the case at least in Paris, London and Brussels (sold out).

Like I was telling Nicolauoa, I think she should try to add additional shows to the venues that are sold out. Though maybe its too late to do that. It would save money on travel costs and probably yield a few more sold out shows. But hey, who knows what the particulars are regarding any touring problems...

Also, if she truly wants her health to improve she should stop drinking and smoking cigarettes and weed, for real this time. This could be a late stage of alcoholism, sadly enough.

Inquiétant...
J'évitais de lire les comptes rendus, ou de regarder les vidéos de la tournée US pour ne pas trop faire monter la pression et y aller dans un esprit de totale découverte, je crois que j'ai peut-être bien fait. ça m'attriste pour elle et pour nous. Crying or Very sad

J'étais le premier sur le coup en France. bigboss

Bon, vivement qu'on en sache un peu plus, car sinon ça va me gaver cette histoire...
Annoncer qu'une tournée est annulée, j'avais déjà entendu, par contre qu'elle sera peut-être annulée, pour moi c'est une première et je n'aime pas particulièrement ça.

You know times are tough for indie musicians when even Chan Marshall—who released a Top 10 Billboard album and played sold-out concerts this year—is bankrupt. The singer known as Cat Power has announced a likely cancellation of her upcoming European tour because of financial and health problems. Before taking the stage in Minneapolis last night, Marshall broke the news on Instagram with the following message:

I MAY HAVE TO CANCEL MY EUROPEAN TOUR DUE TO BANKRUPTCY & MY HEALTH STRUGGLE WITH ANGIOEDEMA. I HAVE NOT THROWN IN ANY TOWEL, I AM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT BEST I CAN DO ...

It's no shock to learn that musicians lead financially precarious lives, but the thought of an artist as big as Cat Power going broke is particularly disheartening. The album Marshall released last month was as successful as any indie product could hope to be in 2012. Sun broke the Bilboard Top 10 and made a splash in Europe, peaking at No. 6 in France. It went over just as well with the critics, with reviewers calling the album "honest, accomplished, and pretty much just beautiful." Then she did what's required of every modern day songstress wanting to put bread on her table—she went out and played, selling out a number of clubs. If that's not enough to turn a profit in indie music, then all the artists who didn't make it onto the Juno soundtrack must be very deep in the red.

Marshall's bankruptcy resonates with the angle Nitsuh Abebe took in his recent New York cover story on Grizzly Bear. Abebe showed that "hitting the big time" for today's musicians means having enough to pay the bills, feed yourself, and maybe buy a few vinyl records now and then. Health insurance remains a huge concern. Some Grizzly Bear members admitted to being uninsured. Marshall hasn't publicly disclosed her insurance status or commented on whether health costs led to her bankruptcy. But let's hope she has a health plan, because she's been something of a fixture at Miami's Mt. Sinai Medical Center lately. In 2006, she checked in for alcohol addiction, and last month she was back in one of their hospital beds for undisclosed reasons. Her admission that she suffers from angioedema—a serious condition that causes swelling in the face, tongue, and throat, sometimes leading to life-threatening suffocation—is scary. With or without coverage, these kinds of persistent medical issues can spell the end of a musician's career. Or at least force them to put music on the back-burner while working a day job for the health benefits.

Everyone knows that artists go out on a financial limb by committing to creativity as a career. But it's beginning to look like even the most successful musicians—the ones that grace magazine covers and inspire bloggers to gush out 2,000-word think-pieces—soon won't be able to eke out a living from their craft. In retrospect, Sun's closing track "Peace And Love" was full of clues about Marshall's flagging financial health. Her angry lyrics referenced the 99 percent, Wall Street, and the paltry sums artists accrue in the post-Spotify marketplace.

A hundred-thousand hits on the internet
But that don't mean shit
Even if you're legitimate.

Now we know Marshall wasn't just channeling generalized, post-recession frustration through her music. She was singing very specifically about her own diminished economic prospects.

I hope so much that Chan finds a way to make her European tour happen. I hope very much that she knows she has fans and we will support her as much as we can. I am glad I bought one of her silkscreen shirts but now feel like I should have bought another one (I could have done that). I also hope very much that her health improves. Its never ever fun to be sick and not at the top of your game. And we all know that Chan is a perfectionist when playing live and is probably not enjoying not being able to give 100% every night. Do what you have to do Chan.

They are jumping to conclusions too quickly from fragmented information.
Chan wrote that she is bankrupt but it doesn't mean that there is no money in music business. It just means that she spent more money than she earned, whatever the reason.
I don't know how big this money problem is but for such an artist there are always solutions like releasing a live album, producing and selling goodies via kickstarter, etc.

If this problem is due to health insurances costs, she can marry me and become french. Problem solved. clown
