Lauryn Hill has cancelled her planned European tour because of health reasons, it has emerged.

The singer had been due to play a host of dates across the continent, including a performance at the Stockholm Jazz Festival in Sweden.

But festival spokeswoman Liisa Tolonen told the Associated Press that Hill's agent had informed the event the star would no longer be able to attend.

The four-day festival, now in its 26th year, is scheduled to run from July 15-19.

The tour dates would have marked Hill's return to Europe following a two year absence.

In 2007, the former Fugees star was widely criticised after a series of concerts in the UK ended in shambles.
