Demetri Martin’s Cancellation Statement
“Hi. I’m disappointed to tell you that I have to cancel my fall tour. Over the course of this past year, I have become much more run-down than usual. What I thought was exhaustion has turned out to be something more serious. My doctors were able to identify the underlying cause a few days ago. Thankfully, it’s not life-threatening, but it has left me severely anemic and not well enough to travel. I am undergoing treatment, and I’m grateful that I’ll be able to make a full recovery. I’m really sorry to disappoint any of you. It’s been frustrating and difficult to go through this, but I’m looking forward to getting back on the road in 2020 to perform for the fans I appreciate so much.
We wish Demetri a speedy recovery and you will be the first to know if/when we get him onto our Feature Series schedule in the future.
