Sam Smith won’t be performing at Cape Town for the 17 and 18 April shows.
Smith was supposed to perform on both dates at the Grand Arena, GrandWest. Both shows have been cancelled due to concerns with his voice.
Event organisers, Big Concert released a statement:
This difficult decision was made after Sam sought advice from medical specialists and his team, and after having to cut his show short last night with concerns for his voice.
Sam is deeply upset that he is unable to perform for his fans in Cape Town but needs to rest at this time.
Big Concerts wishes Sam a speedy recovery and hopes to welcome him back to Cape Town in the future.
