Cat Power Cancels Florida Theatre Concert

Singer-songwriter intends to reschedule performance


Cat Power is canceling some North American concert dates — including her scheduled performance June 16 at the Florida Theatre.

The singer-songwriter’s management indicated she needs the extra time to prepare for her European Tour, but she intends to make up the concert. The makeup date has yet to be determined.

The Florida Theatre posted June 4 on its Facebook page: “We have received word from Cat Power that she will not be able to play the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville and the show schedule for June 16 has been canceled. Cat Power sincerely regrets this development and she hopes to make up our date and others. In the meantime, please seek a ticketing refund at your point of purchase.”

The announcement comes days after news that she was added to The Weezer Cruise, coincidentally departing from Jacksonville for a four-night cruise Feb. 13-17, 2014, on the Carnival Fascination.

In addition to Weezer and Cat Power, the lineup includes Toro y Moi, Diiv, The Cribs, Ash and Holy F*ck. 

In 2012, the singer-songwriter postponed her European tour, announcing via Instagram that it was “due to bankruptcy & my health struggle with Angioedema.”

Angioedema is “a swelling that is similar to hives, but the swelling is under the skin instead of on the surface,” according to the National Institutes of Health. It can be caused by an allergic reaction.
