Ari Lennox declared she’s done taking flights for her concerts.
The Dreamville singer will no longer accept gigs that require to her fly. Ari Lennox revealed how much her fear of flying affects her in an Instagram Stories post on Sunday (June 19).
“For my mental health and my sanity l will not be doing any shows that require me to fly,” she wrote. “I can not keep torturing myself with this huge fear of mine. It is literally destroying my health. Enough is enough. I’m so sorry to all that are inconvenienced by this. Don’t know what this will mean for my career, but I just can’t do it.”
Although travel and logistics might be more inconvenient, Ari Lennox will be able to make her way around North America in a tour bus. But fans overseas will miss out on her shows unless she becomes willing to fly again.
The platinum-selling artist noted she wants to overcome her fear of flying, so the situation could change.
“If there’s any peers or anyone out there who knows of a great hypnotherapist, therapist and/or fear of flying solutions, I would be so grateful,” she wrote. “I want to beat this.”
Ari Lennox hasn’t released a solo album since 2019’s Shea Butter Baby. Last month, she dropped a cover of Queen’s “A Kind of Magic.”
