SZA’s Toronto Concert Unexpectedly Cancelled Due to Illness


Just a shade shy of showtime on a Wednesday evening, the unexpected became the unfortunate reality for SZA fans. The acclaimed American singer took to Instagram to divulge the sudden cancellation of her concert at Scotiabank Arena, Toronto.

“I’m here at the arena. I just tried to do sound check. I sound terrible,” SZA confided, her voice echoing in the vast, empty space of the stage. She vowed to fans that she seeks perfection for every performance, “I only want to give you guys 100 per cent, and that’s what you deserve, and I won’t give you any less than that.” Continuing her heartfelt message, she vowed to return to the city and make up for the unexpected disappointment.

The compelling reason behind the unexpected hiatus was that SZA had fallen sick. Revealed in an earlier post, the star confessed that she fell ill after a performance in New Jersey, stating that despite her body being “semi able” to proceed, her voice was “shot”. This announcement came as a blow, with fans eagerly anticipating the second show in the city as part of SZA’s “SOS” tour supporting her sophomore studio album.

In a commiserating post, Scotiabank Arena confirmed the postponement due to illness, encouraging ticket holders to hold onto their tickets for a rescheduled date. The specifics of the new show are yet to be unveiled. The sorrowful echo of the empty arena is a poignant reminder of the dedication artists like SZA have to their craft, and their fans.
