Charli’s statement read, “Dear angels,
“I’m devastated to inform you that I have to cancel my shows in both Brussels and Utrecht today and tomorrow. I have completely lost my voice and despite trying many techniques to revive it, it is not returning. I am under doctors orders to go on both vocal and physical rest in the hope that my voice will come back as soon as possible. I wish that there was a way that I could perform for you guys, but singing is literally impossible right now and the show is too physical to tackle whilst my glands are flared up and in pain. (sic)”
Charli also promised to keep her fans updated on her health in the coming days and weeks.
Her post continued: “I am so sorry to let you down, I really am. I was so looking forward to these next two shows in Europe.
“I will keep you updated with my progress and hopefully with rest and the right medication I will be back fighting fit.
“Your ticket provider will be reaching out to you soon with information about refunds.
“Lots of love and apologies
Charli was also scheduled to perform today (Sunday 29 May) at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Coventry, but had to pull out.
“We’re sorry to hear that Charli XCX can’t make it on Sunday to Radio 1’s Big Weekend,” Radio 1 tweeted on Friday. “We wish her all the best and a speedy recovery!”
Charli responded by retweeting the message and writing: “I’m so sorry everyone. I’ve started taking my antibiotics and hopefully I’ll be back ASAP.”
