After unexpectedly cancelling her Amsterdam appearance over the weekend, fans have been wondering why Agnete from Norway was MIA. Turns out, the Melodi Grand Prix winner is battling a virus infection.
The bad news doesn’t stop here, as Agnete has been forced to cancel all her other promotional tour dates. This means that she won’t be present in Tel Aviv, Bucharest, or London either.
Agnete has made the official announcement about her illness and tour cancellation via Facebook.
sorry for the lack of updates from me.
These last few weeks I have been battling a virus infection that seem to enjoy spending time with me as a host, trust me, it´s not a mutual feeling. This have kept me laying in bed for some time now, unable to do any work.
This infectious disease is transmitted to several of my friends, to the people who work with me and their friends/family who is now all suffering from what I am still battling.
Although I am recovering, I am not recovering quick enough to be able to do want I really want to do.
After the cancellation in Amsterdam, we (myself, my doctor and the people I travel with) have decided that the best thing to do is take our time to fully recover. Our doctor has strongly advised us to not leave the country, this is for the concern of our health but also so we don´t infect any of the other artists/people/fans from the other countries.
Unfortunately this means that I, with a heavy heart, will have to cancel all of the upcoming events this week; Israel Calling, the TVR Eurovision Party in Bucuresti and The London Eurovision Party.
I am extremely sorry for any inconvenience regarding this, and I am terribly sorry for all the people who were looking forward to meeting me at these show. I have to prioritize the health of myself so I am in shape for Stockholm. On the upside you now won´t get infected!
PS. I know many of you are asking about the music video! It is still being edited. I hope that we will be happy with result very soon!
Once again, I am so sorry!
Thanks for all the support and concern!
Lots of Love, Agnete
Whilst we are sad to miss Agnete at the pre-parties, we fully understand that she needs to take time to recover and get well before Stockholm, which is less than one month away. We wish her and her team all the best, so that they can put that “Icebreaker” in motion at full speed come Eurovision time!
