Big Concerts reported that British superstar Sam Smith had to cut his concert short on Tuesday night due to straining his voice, and has also cancelled his other Cape Town concerts until further notice, leaving thousands of fans disappointed.
The superstar was scheduled to perform at the Grandwest Casino for three sold-out performances this week on 16, 17 and 18 April. He performed at the Ticketpro Dome last weekend, 13 and 14 April.
Big Concerts released a short statement on Twitter about the cancellation and explained that more details about the other Cape Town performances will be made public soon.
"Sam Smith's CPT concert tonight has been cancelled. Unfortunately Sam Smith took strain to his voice & had to stop his performance. Ticket holders will be contacted directly. We will keep you posted with more info for the other CPT performances as it becomes available."
The Too Good at Goodbyes hit-maker arrived in the Mother City on 16 April and shared a picture of himself on Twitter.
But on Monday, Smith opened up about battling anxiety over the last few weeks on Instagram.
"The last week, or so, Ive been doing these incredible shows, and from my pics, I look super happy and calm and collected. And I am happy, and sometimes I am calm. But the last few weeks my anxiety has been so f**king intense! I can't even begin to explain."
But it looks like the anxiety has become worse, as Big Concerts has now issued a new statement informing fans that even the Grandwest Casino performances has been cancelled. Check out the tweet below:
Fans were really disappointed but have also offered their well wishes to the British singer for a speedy recovery.
Looks like Computicket will be handing out refunds, but fans are calling for the concerts to be rescheduled. They don't want to miss this opportunity to see the British superstar perform live.
