Japanese singer Eir Aoi has announced on her Facebook page on Friday that she will take an indefinite hiatus after her fifth anniversary concert at the Nippon Budokan on November 4 and 5.

The staff of the popular singer previously announced last August that she has cancelled her scheduled appearances, including Anime Festival Asia Thailand 2016 and Animelo Summer Live 2016, citing an undisclosed health condition.

The staff has also posted a message from the singer, which says:

I regret having to cancel appearances and performances to take time off and I would like to express my sincere apologies for causing any concerns and inconveniences.

I have decided to take an indefinite hiatus following the live dates at Budokan.
To everyone I’ve had the pleasure of working with and who supported Eir Aoi, and to none other than my wonderful fans who were always so warm and welcoming, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I am looking forward to performing our beloved songs for you, with love and gratitude, at Budokan.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Thank you all for everything.
