Sinéad O’Connor said he wouldn’t be able to play for the rest of the year after his teenage son died, canceling all future live performances.
The singer made a decision earlier this year because of her continued grief over the death of her son Shane O’Connor.
In a statement, O’Connor’s management said it was not an easy decision for the singer, but she canceled the performance because of “her own health and well-being.”
“Sinéad O’Connor would like to pay tribute to not playing live in 2022 as the tragic loss of her beloved son Shane continues earlier this year,” they said in a statement. ..
“This wasn’t an easy decision for Sinead, but at this point it’s a decision she had to make for her own health and well-being.
“We would like to thank and thank Sinead’s global distributor, ICM, for handling this with the utmost respect and dignity and for their tireless efforts.
“We also thank the continued support and understanding of local and international promoters.
“We also thank Sinead’s friends and fans for their support and understanding that we value most throughout this period.
“The love shown was a great source of comfort and peace for Sinead.”
