Sam Smith cancels another gig after just four songs as they issue heartfelt apology to crowd | The Sun
SAM Smith has apologised after cancelling a gig and telling fans "something was really wrong".
The Unholy singer was performing on stage at the AO Arena in Manchester when the crowd was ordered to leave after just four songs.
Moments earlier Sam, 31, had belted out their 2017 hit, Too Good at Goodbyes, before ticket holders heard over a stadium tanoy that the show had been abruptly cancelled.
Videos circulating online appear to show the arena plunging into darkness as thousands of disappointed fans stream out of multiple exits.
Sam issued a statement shortly afterwards, writing on Instagram: "Dearest sailors, I don't know what to say honestly.
"I fought off a virus a few weeks ago and since then we have travelled across Europe and had such incredible shows.

"I came off stage and have tried everything to get my voice back in gear but it won't.
"I am honestly heartbroken I couldn't finish the show tonight for you all.
