Fantasia Explains Why She Plans to Take Extended Break from Touring

Fantasia

*Fantasia has broken the hearts of millions of fans by announcing that her Sketchbook Tour will be her last tour, as her electrifying live performances have taken a toll on her overall health.

While responding to questions on Instagram Live, the “American Idol” winner explained that it has been quite draining to #turnup for fans on stage on a consistent basis, MadameNoire reports.

“It’s been 16 years for me and the way that I perform and as much as I give and I cant help it, takes a lot out of me,” she said.

“I’d rather prepare shows where there are spot shows and do it that way.”

Fortunately for Fanny’s fans, she will continue to release soulful albums. 

“I’ve been blessed to perform all over the world and have never been as excited & hungry to hit the stage as I am for this tour,” Fantasia said in a statement when she announced the Sketchbook Tour. “The stage is my sacred place and where I feel most connected with people through my music. This tour is sure to be one that’s full of great surprises, incredible energy, and an absolutely great time for everyone who is able to come party with Rock Soul in the city nearest you.”
