Sam Smith regrets to inform his South African fans that due to the ‘vocal strain’ which saw him pull out of his first Cape Town show last night 45 minutes in, he has to cancel the remaining two Cape Town shows which were scheduled to take place on the 17th and 18th of April 2019.

Although Big Concerts CEO Justin Van Wyk assured fans that the two shows would go ahead this morning, after seeking medical attention, Sam Smith has confirmed that he won’t be able to go ahead with the final two Cape Town shows.

“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,” Big Concerts said in a statement. “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.”
