(Newsroom America) -- Grammy award winning musician Lorde has postponed her Australian shows because of a nasty chest infection.
Lorde, who shot to stardom with her album 'Pure Heroine', took to Twitter to apologize to fans for the postponement.
"In case you missed the announcement earlier, I have had to postpone my Australian shows because of a nasty chest infection and general ill health.
"I am so so gutted to have to do this but my parents and my team stepped in telling me I needed a break after being non-stop since the Grammys in January," she tweeted.
This year Lorde won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year, Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance, and also picked up a Brit Award for International Female Solo Artist.
She said the Australian tour was likely to take place in November.
