Just hours before he was set to take the stage at The Kia Forum in Inglewood, Harry Styles revealed that he had canceled three Los Angeles concert dates.
The 28-year-old Watermelon Sugar singer shared the information via his Instagram Story and blamed the last-minute cancellations on the lingering illness.
The concerts that were scheduled for Saturday, November 5, Sunday, November 6, and Monday, November 7 have been rescheduled for January. He was scheduled to perform at the 70,000-seat arena.
The venue tweeted that Styles was forced to cancel Friday evening’s LA show due to ‘band illness.’
The Kia Forum will be playing host to a 15-night residency by Styles as part of his North American ‘Love On Tour.’ The tour started on October 31.
‘Towards the end of the show on Wednesday I started feeling ill and I’ve been in bed with the flu ever since,’ Harry’s statement began.
‘I’ve been doing everything I can to be able to sing tonight, but I’m leaving the doctor now and I’m devastated that it’s just not possible.’
‘Until very recently I haven’t had to postpone a show due to illness in the 12 years I’ve been touring. I’m so sorry to do it, and if there was any way I could do the show I would.’
