A message on the Open'er website says, "Dear members and Open'er fans, to the best of our knowledge, Björk's concert in Poland will take place at the term planned, on July 4 at Heineken Open'er Festival. Along with Björk's coworkers, we are incessantly working on the preparations to this performance.

Today, we have received the information from Björk's management that the concerts cancelled so far are the only cancelled ones, and the remaining performances, including the one at Open'er, will proceed."

In a statement on her Facebook page, the singer said: "I am sorry to announce I will not be able to play Primavera Sound (Spain), Optimus Primavera Sound (Portugal), Balaton Sound (Hungary) and Afisha Picnic (Russia) 2012.

After 2 weeks of voice rest I went to my vocal doctor and she came to this conclusion: I need to rest for 6 more weeks . the good news is that we both feel pretty confident I can start singing fully healed in the middle of June."
