O'Connor cancels tour due to bipolar diagnosis
Sinead O'Connor says she is canceling her 2012 tour -- including a May 20 date at the Paramount in Huntington -- due to her bipolar disorder, The Associated Press reports. The singer made the announcement earlier this week in a posting on her website. She wrote that she is "very unwell" and had been advised by her doctor to not hit the road after her "very serious breakdown between December and March." In December, O'Connor announced her split from therapist Barry Herridge after 16 days of marriage. Refunds for the Paramount show are available at the point of purchase.
