N-Dubz returned to the London stage last night (November 23) after canceling their previous performance at the last minute due to illness.
The Camden group – made up of Dappy, Fazer and Tulisa – were scheduled to perform at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena on Tuesday (November 22) as part of their first live tour together in 11 years.
However, the concert was canceled five minutes after N-Dubz’s scheduled performance time. The trio later apologized in a statement on Twitter, confirming that Dappy was ill and “needed to rest.” He previously explained that his “voice [estaba] basically off.”
The hit Nottingham show will now take place on December 7th. Tickets for the original date remain valid.
N-Dubz were able to go ahead with their show at London’s O2 last night as promised, despite Dappy still having vocal problems.
Speaking on social media shortly before last night’s concert, he said (via Music-News.COM): “So, my voice isn’t fully back yet. Last night I took some antibiotics and some different syrups.
“I started trying to sing a few notes today and I was able to. So I was like, ‘Let’s do it, let’s do the show today.'”
In a statement on Tuesday night, N-Dubz wrote: “We are so sorry we have had to cancel tonight’s show,” they wrote. “We tried everything we could to make the show happen, but a doctor advised at the last minute that Dappy couldn’t perform and needed to rest tonight…
“We had to take this advice to heart and keep Dappy’s health in mind so that the rest of the trip can be done, which has been great so far.”
They added: “We are very sorry for all the fans who traveled to see us tonight and promise to reschedule the show for a new date.”
But many fans expressed their anger and frustration at the last-minute postponement.
N-Dubz will be performing at Birmingham’s Utilita Arena this Saturday (November 26) and Leeds’ First Direct Arena on Sunday (November 27). In the next two weeks there will be more concerts.
The group announced their reunion last May, sharing a new single called “Charmer” and detailing their current UK tour.
N-Dubz broke up in 2011 after releasing three studio albums together: ‘Uncle B’ (2008), ‘Against All Odds’ (2009) and ‘Love.Live.Life’ (2010).
