JP Cooper has pulled out his sold-out gig at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre tonight.
The singer is suffering with a sore throat and is under strict instruction to rest his voice.
“So so sorry to do this but having woken up with no voice today and battling through the Live Lounge performance on Radio 1 I’ve been advised I have no choice but to pull tonight’s show,” he said in a statement.
“Believe me this is the last thing I want to be doing, I hate to let down my Irish fans after all the love and support you guys have shown me, but it’s under doctor’s orders.”
He confirmed that the concert has been rescheduled for next month, with all original tickets still valid.
“We have spoken to the promoter and there is a possibility that we can re-arrange the show for the 29th Nov. All original tickets will be valid and I really hope you can all make it. Once again sincerest apologies to everyone who has tickets for the show tonight in Dublin.”
JP was one of the stand-out acts at this year’s Longitude, so no doubt there will be a lot of disappointed fans in Dublin but we hope he makes a speedy recovery.
