Ariana Grande Cancels Rock in Rio Performance Due to Throat and Sinus Infection
"I promise to make it up to you, and give you the best show I'm capable of when I return," she wrote on Instagram.
Although Ariana Grande had a successful week in album sales, she delivered some sad news to fans planning to see her perform live at Portugal’s Rock in Rio. The singer was forced to call off her festival set on doctor’s orders while she overcomes a throat and sinus infection.
"I'm deeply saddened to tell my babes in Portugal that I have to cancel my performance at Rock in Rio. (I've literally been crying over this for an hour) ... I have a throat & sinus infection & my doctors have advised me not to sing for a few days,” Grande — who was scheduled to take the stage at Rock in Rio in Lisbon on Sunday — wrote on Instagram. “I promise to make it up to you, and give you the best show I'm capable of when I return. Again, I'm so sorry to the babes who were coming to see me. I love you with all my heart."
Grande’s new album, Dangerous Woman, was released on May 20. It debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, just behind Drake’s Views.
