**Please note this event has been Cancelled**
Official statement from Girli:
After the show last night in Leeds, I had dinner, went to bed, and then woke up at 4am with a crazy fever, stomach pains and have been vomiting constantly since. I went to an emergency doctor this morning and she said I have a bad case of Norovirus – because of how weak my body is, and the fact my throat is raw from all the vomiting – she recommended rest for a week to recover properly, which means I am unable to perform the rest of my shows on this tour in Birmingham, London, Brighton and Southampton.
I’m literally crying as i write this. Performing for you all is my favourite thing in the whole world and i am actually heartbroken that I can’t play the rest of tour. We’ll def reschedule the shows and for everyone who has bought a ticket, your tickets will still be valid.
I also know that some of you travel long distances to come to the shows, and i cannot stress how sorry i am to cancel these. if you were planning to travel from another country / a long distance to one of these shows, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will see what we can do to make it up to you!
i am so sorry, lots of love,
London’s most unapologetic and compelling popstar GIRLI is on the rise. With the release of material including new single ‘Day Month Second’ on June 7th challenging social ideology – this is a pop star with a sting.
“Day Month Second” is an irresistible electro-pop bop that hits back at bad-boy behaviour. Epically catchy, “Day Month Second” sees post-breakup GIRLI encourage her tribe to live in the present, making for a euphoric track with a gritty dance feel. In the run up to the release, GIRLI encouraged her followers to post pictures, videos and tweets of themselves doing things that makes them happier along with the #DAYMONTHSECOND hashtag.
Speaking on the track, GIRLI says “‘Day Month Second’ is my breakup anthem. It’s about wanting to get over someone so bad but not being able to shake the memory of them and how they messed you around. It’s an angry, sad, but also liberating tune. STRUT DOWN THE STREET TO THIS. DANCE LIKE NO-ONE’S WATCHING. BLOCK THEM & BUY YOURSELF A PIZZA & SCREAM IN THE STREET!”
After releasing a string of successful singles from the ‘Hot Mess’ EP, followed by writing sessions in Los Angeles, GIRLI has taken on a more alt-pop feel. Continuing to maintain her socio-political opinions and characteristically honest vibe, she spoke and performed at the #FreePeriodsProtest outside Parliament last year.
Last month, GIRLI took her unmissable show across the UK, including a sold-out headline show at Highbury & Islington’s iconic venue The Garage. Today also sees GIRLI announce her nationwide tour dates throughout October – including a date at London’s iconic gay nightclub Heaven.
