Sinead O’Connor has cancelled all upcoming live performances following the death of her and musician Donal Lunny’s teenage son.
The singer has taken the decision to not perform for the rest of this year due to her continuing grief over the death of her son Shane O’Connor earlier this year aged 17.
In a statement, her management said that it was not an easy decision for the singer, but she had cancelled the performances for the sake of ‘her own health and wellbeing’. ‘We would like to respectfully announce that due to continuing grief over the tragic loss of her beloved son Shane earlier this year, Sinead O’Connor will not be performing live in 2022,’ they said in a statement. ‘This has not been an easy decision for Sinead but a decision she has had to make for her own health and wellbeing at this time. ‘We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to Sinead’s worldwide agency ICM who have handled this with the utmost respect and dignity and have worked tirelessly. ‘We would also extend our gratitude for the continuing support and understanding of local and international promoters. ‘Thank you also to Sinead’s friends and fans whose support and understanding we hold in the highest esteem throughout this period.
