Lizzo apologized to fans Thursday after canceling her Montreal show due to illness.
In an Instagram video where she was seen laying down under a blanket and wearing a mask, the singer shared, “Montreal, I had a sore throat last night and a headache when I went to bed. And I woke up this morning and it was worse and my body is weak, and I have chills and my head hurts.”
She added, “And normally if it’s just a cold, I would shower, I would eat, take some medicine and get better, but this is getting worse. I think it’s the flu and I have to make the unfortunate decision to cancel today.”
Lizzo said it was the second time she’s ever had to cancel a show in her entire career due to a health issue, and promised to reschedule.
She had been set to perform at the Bell Centre for her Lizzo: The Special Tour. Her next scheduled show is Saturday in Hartford, Connecticut, but it’s not yet known if she will postpone that date too.
