"This 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," the company said in a statement.

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

“Big Concerts wishes Sam a speedy recovery and hopes to welcome him back to Cape Town in the future.”
