According to reports, she had some album promotion tour dates pushed back.
The news comes after Banks’ UK tour dates were postponed from September 2014 to December 2014 – not exactly a good sign. The shows were supposed to be in support of Broke With Expensive Taste, which was last confirmed to be released April 16. (Gigwise)
