The singer will release her long-awaited fourth album on 19 November (21) but, despite topping charts globally with its lead single "Easy on Me", the Brit won't be hitting the road to play live to fans.
"It's too unpredictable, with all the rules and stuff. I don't want anyone coming to my show scared. And I don't want to get COVID, either," she said, reported Britain's The Sun.
However, she will play a handful of one-off shows, including two dates at BST Hyde Park 2022 in London next July (22).
Previously, she played her first concert since 2017 in London on Saturday, November 6. Her guest list included Beyonce Knowles, Idris Elba, and Dua Lipa. Her boyfriend, sports agent Rich Paul, was in attendance as well.
Other famous fans in the audience included Brits Emma Watson, Richard E. Grant, Olly Alexander, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Naomi Campbell, former Spice Girls star Melanie Brown, Grime artist Stormzy, Boy George, and David Tennant.
The star's last live show was at London's Wembley Stadium in July 2017, but she did not complete her dates at the fabled venue, cancelling her last two gigs due to vocal cord damage.
