Big Concerts on Wednesday announced that the remaining Sam Smith shows on 17 and 18 April at the Grand Arena, GrandWest have been cancelled.

This comes after the British singer cancelled his show halfway through his Tuesday night performance due to a strained voice.

In the statement released by the event organiser, they explain that the "difficult decision was made after Sam sought advice from medical specialists and his team, and after having to cut his show short last night with concerns for his voice".  

Adding that "Sam is deeply upset that he is unable to perform for his fans in Cape Town but needs to rest at this time".
