Singer Apologizes to Fans and Promises Rescheduled Show
Toronto, ON – October 5, 2023 – Fans of Grammy-nominated artist SZA were met with disappointment on Wednesday evening when the singer announced the postponement of her Toronto tour date just hours before taking the stage at Scotiabank Arena. The reason cited for the sudden change was a debilitating illness that prevented her from delivering the performance her fans deserved.

In an emotional video posted on Instagram, SZA expressed her sincere regrets to her loyal supporters. “Hey gang, I’m here at the arena,” she began. “I just tried to do sound check, I sound terrible. I only want to give you guys 100 percent, and that’s what you deserve, and I won’t give you less than that. I promise you I will come back to Toronto and make it up. I’m so sorry. I wanted to push through very much. I’m on as much dexamethasone as one can be on, and I love you, and I promise you I’ll be back. I tried, I came, I got in hair and makeup and all the things. I love you, and I’m really sorry.”
