Today, Demi Lovato released a statement to her fans after she had to cancel her show in London, England. The 25-year-old singer wrote on her social media today, Sunday, June 10th, that she had to say sorry for not being able to make it.
Lovato, the singer of “Sorry, Not Sorry,” wrote that it was through “tears of frustration and sadness” that she has to postpone her concert at the O2 tonight.
According to Demi, she had to put off her show because of her swollen vocal cords. The star explained that her choice to cancel was one made out of concern for longevity as well as the remaining dates on her tour.
If she doesn’t stop and take a break, then the rest of her fans will miss out, and she may even potentially damage her voice.
The star continued, in the same vein, stating that she was incredibly apologetic to all of her fans who wanted to see her and traveled long distances for the show.

“It breaks my heart to let you down,” Demi explained. And while she won’t perform tonight, she rescheduled the show for June 25th after her performance in Madrid, Spain, as well as Rock in Rio, in Brazil.
As you may know, singers often have to cancel their concerts due to the stress on their vocal cords, and sometimes just because of exhaustion. Perhaps, most famously, was when Justin canceled the rest of his “Purpose” tour because he had been on the road for over a year.
At the time, Justin took to his social media and said he would have to cancel for the sake of longevity and the rest of his career. Had he continued any further, Justin wouldn’t have been able to continue with music, in general, because the workload was just too much.
