Rita Ora has sparked fury among her fans by canceling a gig at the last minute.
The singer was set to perform in Bristol on Saturday, May 19, but released a video on Twitter, and a written statement on Instagram, apologizing for being unable to perform.
“Hello everyone, I am so devastated to let you know that due to medical advice I have been advised to reschedule tonight’s show in Bristol. I am so so sorry to disappoint all of my fans in Bristol who were looking forward to the show tonight,” she wrote.
“I am moving it to the 29th May, I hate that I have to do this! This sucks and I will see all of you who bought a ticket in 10 days! Love you, always Rita.”
She then shared a video of her in bed to Twitter, further explaining the reason for canceling the Bristol show.
“I’m sorry, this sucks and I hate hate hate saying things like this but I have to cancel my show tonight in Bristol, because all my doctors have told me that it’s a risk and they’ve advised me to rest,” Rita croaked in the clip. “I will be back, and I promise everyone who bought a ticket will get a show.”
The Girls hitmaker performed at O2 Brixton Academy in London on Friday (18May18), and later posted images of herself on Instagram which looked like she was heading out for a night of partying.
“Put my Lil Freakum dress on/dropped a lil drink but I don’t care. Best night ever!!” Rita captioned two snaps of her seemingly leaving a club in the British capital.
Some fans took to social media to share their frustration, with some speculating that it could explain her canceling the gig.
“So I’m in Bristol because @RitaOra decided to go on the lash last night and cancel tonight’s event,” one wrote, while another user posted: “Yet you’re ‘too ill’ to make Bristol.”
A rep for Rita, 27, said in a statement on Saturday: “Rita went home after her concert at Brixton Academy. She did not go out last night as she was not feeling well. Doctors ordered her to cancel the show the show in Bristol tonight due to illness.”
