Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran canceled his Las Vegas show at Allegiant Stadium Saturday less than an hour before the show was set to begin,
according to a statement the artist made on Instagram. Around 5:30 p.m. Sheeran posted to his Instagram stating in part,
“I can’t believe I’m typing this but there’s been some challenges encountered during the load in of our Vegas show.
It’s impossible to go forward with the show. I’m so sorry. I know everyone has travelled in for this and I wish I could change it.”
Fans expressed their disappointment following the announcement, but told 8 News Now that they understood that the situation was out of the artist’s hands.
“We love him, it’s not his fault and we are not too far away so we’ll come back but we’re so sad,” 21-year-old fan Emma White who came from Salt Lake City with her family for the concert said.
Sheeran announced that the show will be rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 28 and all purchased tickets will be valid for the date.
“We based our day today on coming here tonight. So, we haven’t done certain stuff because we knew we were coming here tonight so it is a little bit annoying,”
Steven Mason said. He traveled from England for his birthday to see the concert with his girlfriend Elisha. They won’t be back for the postponed concert later in October.”
