Ariana Grande canceled a concert in Vietnam on Wednesday, only hours before she was expected to take the stage. The singer posted a social media message blaming the cancellation on “health issues.”
Grande was expected to perform at Quan khu 7 Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City as part of her ongoing “Dangerous Woman Tour.” But she revealed roughly five hours before show time, “My babes in Vietnam, I apologize from the bottom of my heart but I’m really dealing with some health problems at the moment. I came here to Vietnam, so excited to perform, my doctor won’t allow me to do the show for you tonight.”
“I’m so so sorry,” the singer continued in the message, which was posted on Instagram Stories. “There is nothing I hate to do more than to do this but I promise to make it up to you in the future. I love you and thank you for understanding.” It’s unclear if the health problems are related to Grande’s voice, and she has not addressed the last-minute cancellation on Twitter. Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for more information.
According to local reports, some fans received the disappointing news while they were already lined up outside the venue. With ticket prices reportedly ranging from $35 to $220, officials are seeking refunds for the would-be concertgoers. Grande, who is on the Asian leg of her tour, is next scheduled to perform in Beijing on Saturday, followed by Shanghai. She travels to Australia and New Zealand in early September, before returning to Asia for additional concerts in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong. The tour is currently slated to end on September 21.
As Gossip Cop reported, Grande previously canceled her “Dangerous Woman Tour” for seven shows following the deadly bombing at her Manchester concert in late May. She resumed touring in early June, but none of the canceled dates have been rescheduled so far. The pop star is pictured above during her “One Love Manchester” benefit concert on June 4.
