‘My team and I are still really not well’

Sam Smith has cancelled another gig after the performer and their team fell ill last week.

The 30-year-old singer told fans on Monday that they would not be able to perform at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham Tuesday as they were well not well enough. The show has been postponed until next month.

The Stay with Me singer, 30, took to their Instagram Stories on Monday to tell fans they would not be able to perform at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham on Tuesday as they were well not well enough, postponing the show until May 27.

The announcement came days after the ‘Unholy’ singer pulled out of their Glasgow show at OVO Hydro Area on Saturday.

Sam announced on Instagram: “Sailors, I am so sorry to let you know that my team and I are still really not well, so unfortunately we need to reschedule out Birmingham show to the 27th of May 2023.

“It’s so important to me that we give you the very best version of Gloria. I don’t want you to experience it at anything less.

‘Thank you so much for understanding, I know how excited everyone is to see the show, and I feel the same about seeing all of you.”

Smith said all previous tickets are still valid for the new date.

They also posted a picture of themselves dressed in flowing white robes, with the information for the new date.

Smith pulled out of the Glasgow show on Friday, saying they were “really unwell”. That gig was re-scheduled for 25 May.

“Myself and a lot of my team have been hit with a virus, that’s made us really unwell.

“I want to give you the best version of Gloria the Tour and at the moment that’s not possible.

“It was also really important to me that we had another date to move this to straight away. ‘We will celebrate Gloria together!!”

The Birmingham show was meant to be the sixth show of Smith’s ‘Gloria’ tour across the UK and Europe. Their next concert will take place on April 29 at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark. The remaining dates include shows in Berlin, Stockholm, Oslo, Cologne, Amsterdam, Antwerp and more
