The official website for singer Eir Aoi announced on Friday that due to her poor health, she will be going on indefinite hiatus after her planned 5th Anniversary Special Live 2016 concerts at Tokyo's Nippon Budōkan venue on November 4-5.

Her latest album, D'Azur, debuted at #3 on Oricon's weekly album chart for the June 22-28 week in 2015. She released her 13th and latest single, "Tsubasa," on July 20, with the single's title song serving as the theme song for The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance television anime:

Aoi cancelled her performance at Animelo Summer Live 2015 -THE GATE- in August 2015 due to a sudden illness, but performed in New York City and at Anime Expo in Los Angeles this year.
