Ariana Grande recently announced that she has postponed two Florida tour dates due to illness. The singer took to social media networking site, Instagram, on Tuesday to let her fans know. The first show was originally scheduled at Tampa’s Amalie Arena for May 28 – the day she announced the postponement. The second was today – Wednesday, May 29 at Orlando’s Amway Center. The new dates are now November 24 and November 25, respectively.
In her Instagram post, Ariana said: “Tampa and Orlando. I woke up incredibly sick today, ran to my doctor here and have been told to postpone these shows tonight and tomorro.” The singer apologized to fans, saying that “I am so beyond devastated. I will make this up to you, I promise. Please forgive me.”
“I love you,” she continued. “I will be back and better than ever as soon as possible. Love you.”
Meanwhile, Live Nation Florida tweeted that ticket holders will be entitled to refunds. It also added that the tickets will be honored at the later dates.
Ariana is currently on her “Sweetener World Tour” to promote the album of the same name as well as the more recent “Thank U, Next” LP. Both the albums have earned her great success. The world tour kicked off on March 18 in Albany, New York.
The May 6 Staples Centre show’s live review by Variety‘s said: “You have come to the right place if you want a pop show that is giddy, splendorous, beautifully designed, expertly performed and almost a little bit avant-garde in its staging. If you are willing to swap all the personal asides you might expect out of a typical pop-diva show for something that’s more of an experimental visual art piece that happens to include terrifically fun songs and performances, it’s not such a bad tradeoff,” it added.
