In some unfortunate news for Eir Aoi fans, the singer has announced that she will be going on a hiatus due to poor health.

In a statement released on her official website, Aoi revealed that after discussions with her staff, she will cancel all her activities in the near future and focus on recovering:

"Due to Eir’s recent health condition, it has been decided that all her activities in the near future will be cancelled. She has discussed with us staff and it was determined that she needed to take some time off to rest and recover.

We are very sorry for all the fans that were looking forward to her shows, all of the event-related staffs, and all other appearing artists; but we promise that we will do our best to have Eir recover, so that she can come back as soon as possible."

Aoi's break will begin immediately, and due to the cancellation of all appearances including a planned performance at "ANIMAX MUSIX 2017 OSAKA", it appears that the singer's hiatus will last through to at least the beginning of 2017.

Get well soon, Eir Aoi, and come back when you're good and ready!
