Sam Smith cancels concert due to illness

British singer Sam Smith cancelled a gig in Toronto, Canada on Sunday (21Sep14) because he is suffering from tonsillitis.

The Stay With Me hitmaker was struck by the throat condition over the weekend (20-21Sep14), less than a week into the North American leg of his tour, and he axed the concert at Kool Haus in Toronto as he was unable to speak.


Smith apologised in a post on Instagram.com, writing, "Toronto, I am so unbelievably sorry but I'm going to have to cancel tonight's show. I woke up yesterday morning with tonsillitis and I didn't speak all day and all night in hopes it would clear and I'd be able to perform for you all tonight. It's worse and I can't speak. I'm so upset and will reschedule the show as soon as possible. I'm sorry."


The singer is scheduled to perform in Chicago, Illinois on Monday (22Sep14), but it is not known if this date will go ahead.
