Demi Lovato Cancels Concert 45 Minutes Before It was Set to Begin

By  | 

Man, oh man. We don’t know who we feel worst for: Demi Lovato or the fans. This past Sunday night, minutes before the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer was due on stage at the O2 Arena in London for her world tour, she posted this note on Instagram canceling the show because of a severe illness and swollen vocal chords:

“I write this through tears of frustration and sadness that I have to postpone my concert tonight due to being very, very sick and with swollen vocal cords that were examined by an ENT (dr). If I go on tonight and injure my vocal cords any more I could potentially have to cancel the rest of the tour.”

We do NOT want that. She added:

“I’m so, so sorry to disappoint any of my fans in London that have traveled hours to be here by plane or car and to all of the fans that got these tickets for their birthday or holiday or any other special occasion. It breaks my heart to let you down.”

Luckily, she was inundated with supportive messages from her fans. The O2 Arena also released a statement rescheduling her show for Monday June 25th:

“All tickets will remain valid for the new date.”

Hopefully, Demi’s throat will be fine by her next show, which is right around the corner… as in June 12th in Birmingham in the UK.
