Charli XCX has postponed her show in Brighton tonight (August 31) as part of the National Lottery and Music Venue Trust’s Revive Live tour due to illness.
The singer was set to play the Concorde 2 venue tonight for the fundraising tour, which was launched in 2020 in an effort to help community centers in the UK survive after COVID.
In a statement yesterday (August 30), Charli said she was suffering from a stomach bug and would keep fans updated on her well-being ahead of the show.
He said: “Guys, I’ve had a stomach bug for the last 48 hours, ever since I woke up the day after the Reading festival. It’s been brutal. I was hoping to feel better the night before tonight and be able to face the Brighton Show tomorrow, but I don’t know.” If the universe will let me.
“I’m resting in bed and I’ve been sleeping through the fever for the last two days. I’ve been prescribed some antibiotics so I’ve got my fingers crossed. I’ll keep you posted.
On Wednesday morning, he confirmed that the show had been canceled and that he was looking at rescheduling the concert for this week.
In a second update, Charli wrote: “Unfortunately Angels have had to postpone my show tonight in Brighton for the Music Venue Trust. I’ve got some sort of stomach bug/food poisoning and my doctor has advised me to rest so that I can recover and hopefully be able to continue with the show later this week.
“My team are working with the venue to see if we can reschedule for the next few days when it’s better. They will update you by the end of the day and advise you on ticket validity and first steps other etc.”
