Cat Power at Sun tour kickoff in Miami.
Chan Marshall never really seems to catch a break.

While her management and PR team were pushing Marshall's new album Sun as the ultimate proof that she'd finally gotten her shit together, we here at Crossfade knew something was up when the songstress was hospitalized and Tweeting weird shit, just weeks before her tour kickoff in Miami.

And now, according to an all-caps Tumblr post, she might even be canceling her entire European tour.

The legacy of Cat Power is fraught with countless public performances gone completely and utterly awry. And Sun was supposed to usher in a new era of professionalism that would begin at Downtown Miami's Grand Central. But when the concert turned out to be the same-old-trainwreck (and Marshall responded to our fair critique of her performance with nonsensically threatening beat poetry), it became clear that this tour was probably fucked.

And sadly, Marshall's latest completely-devoid-of-lowercase-letters Tumblr post appears to confirm Crossfade's suspicions:

I MAY HAVE TO CANCEL MY EUROPEAN TOUR DUE TO BANKRUPTCY & MY HEALTH STRUGGLE WITH ANGIOEDEMA. I HAVE NOT THROWN IN ANY TOWEL, I AM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT BEST I CAN DO. HEART BROKEN. WORKED SO HARD. GOT SICK DAY AFTER "SUN" CAME OUT & BEEN STRUGGLING TO KEEP ALL POINTS OF ME IN EQUILIBRIUM : MIND, SPIRIT, BODY HEALTHY CENTERED & GROUNDED. I AM DOING THE BEST I CAN. I FUCKING LOVE THIS PLANET. I REFUSE TO GIVE UP. THOUGH I MAY NEED TO RESTRATAGIZE FOR MY SECURITY & HEALTH.

Hopefully, Marshall gets the much-needed help and support she deserves.

New Times loves slamming Chan Marshall any chance they get. From the nonsense review of her show at Grand Central to this and everything in between. There's no real journalism going on, just writers trying to make a name for themselves. No research. No mention in the Grand Central review that it was the first show of the tour. No mention that this was a new backing band. There was a mention of  "crowd noise" but no mention that the noisiest (and most distracting event) of the evening was the New Times photographer getting in a shouting match with security and Cat Power personnel as he tried to force his way into the side-stage/backstage area.

 

Sun was "supposed to usher in a new era of professionalism"? What about the entire "Greatest" and "Jukebox" tours of 06-08? Oops, don't want to talk about how well that went. That wouldn't fit your agenda.

 

It doesn't really matter what the amateur writers of this publication think. The PEOPLE of Miami love Ms. Marshall and that's who's she's playing for.
