Paloma Faith has apologised to fans after pulling out of her upcoming shows due to illness.
The singer has been diagnosed with laryngitis, an inflammation of the voice box or vocal cords.
Her Friday night concert at Haydock Park Racecourse in Merseyside has been cancelled, and she was also scheduled to perform on Saturday at the Lingfield Park Resort in Surrey.
A statement from music promoter Jockey Club Live and Haydock Park said that they hoped she would be well enough to perform on Friday, but that “after seeing a doctor today, she is under orders to rest further”.
The statement continued: “Our sincere apologies to all those who purchased tickets or hospitality. We would like to wish Paloma Faith a speedy recovery.”
Faith, 37, said: “I am so sorry to announce that under doctors’ orders I am unable to perform my two shows this weekend. I hate to disappoint my fans and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
“I do hope to continue my tour once recovered and look forward to seeing you in the future. All my love, Paloma.”
