Jessie J has defended postponing her 2013 UK tour, insisting she wants to finish her second album first so she can give fans a "bigger and better" show
Jessie J has defended postponing her tour next year.
The 'Domino' hitmaker was set to begin her UK tour on February 26 2013, playing 17 dates - but after falling behind with her second album she has decide to reschedule for October, so fans will have heard new tracks before they see them live.
In a series of Tweets Jessie wrote: "I could do my UK tour in Feb but my album will not be out beforehand so if I did new songs you wouldn't know them... I have personally moved it back to make sure you ALL get a BIGGER and BETTER show and will know the music I'm performing (sic).
"My album is not finished and I am giving myself more time to finish it. I understand some of you are disappointed as am I.
"Music and art cannot be rushed. I promise It will be worth the wait. Thank you for supporting me (sic)."
However, many fans were disappointed at their idol's decision to change the dates.
One user tweeted: "@JessieJ I cant come to the tour if its in october:'( (sic)"
Another added: "@JessieJ you have dissapointed (sic) so many people, how nice of u to do this. :( (sic)"
Jessie is also returning as a mentor on the second series of reality show 'The Voice'.
Jessie's vocals can be heard on one new song, as she guests on up and coming singer-songwriter Daley's new single 'Remember Me', which is out now.
