Jessie J Suffers ‘Sudden Illness,’ Cancels Australian Tour
Jessie's shows in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth have been canceled. She released a statement via Frontier Touring, expressing her regret for the cancellations. She said (quote via Billboard), "Due to sudden illness I have unfortunately been medically advised to cancel my three remaining shows in Australia, so I can give myself time to rest and get better. I am extremely sorry for any inconvenience this may cause my fans in Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide. If I could magic myself better and be there I would. I can't wait to perform for you all in the future. Thank you for your support."
According to Billboard, this marks the second consecutive show taking place in Perth that Jessie has been forced to cancel. "Vocal exhaustion" saw her pulling out of her 2012 shows. Taking to Frontier's Facebook page, people expressed their disappointment, with a fan named Daniel Outhred writing, "Dave Grohl has severe gastro and still played in Perth! Harden the f--- up!" Someone else, named Jenk Umit, used Jessie's lyrics against her, wrIting, "'NOBODYS PERFECT' you can sing that now Jessie."
Other fans were more supportive, with Jess Lewis writing, "People! Yes this sucks and I'm upset too but if she is sick then she is sick. As fans you should be respectful and wish her well! We will get our turn one day Perth."
Jessie is set to be back in Australia later this year as a coach on the singing competition show The Voice.
