Dua Lipa breaks down after cancelling Denver show midway to prevent permanent damage to her ear
Dua Lipa apologized to fans for canceling her Denver show midway due to an ear infection and promised to reschedule the show soon
Pop singer-songwriter Dua Lipa ended her concert after only three songs on Tuesday at Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado. The 22-year-old singer, teary-eyed, confessed to the audience that she would have to stop her performance due to an ear infection, as she wasn't feeling too well.
According to the Sun, Dua told the audience that the infection could cause some permanent damage to the ear. The article quotes her saying, "I really tried to push through for this show, I wanted to give you guys a really good show... I feel so bad for letting you guys down because I can't possibly or physically do it and this is not the kind of show I want to give you guys... So I'm so, so, so sorry but I'm not going to continue tonight... I will be back, I'm so sorry, thank you so much."
She later took to Twitter to apologize to her fans. Her post read: "I'm so very sorry to have had to stop tonight's show... I've had an ear infection for the last couple of days, I thought I would be able to pull through but it was quite painful and I was advised that, if I carried on, I could cause permanent damage to my ear... I feel so sad to have disappointed you guys."
CapitalFm informed that Dua was taking her huge collection of anthems on tour around the United States while performing in places like San Diego and San Francisco. The outlet quotes her saying, "I thought I would be able to pull through but it was quite painful and I was advised that, if I carried on, I could cause permanent damage to my ear." She also asked her fans to hold on to their tickets, as she is planning a rescheduling of the show.
Meanwhile, Dua's father is known to be organizing his own music festival, Sunnyhill Festival, in the pop star's hometown and the first edition of the festival is to take place this summer. According to NME, the festival will take place in Prishtina, Kosovo sometime between August 10 to 12. Dua Lipa is supposed to headline the event alongside Action Bronson and there will be a surprise performance by the '#1 DJ in the world' whose name will be announced on July 17.
Dua had taken to Twitter to announce the festival's inauguration, explaining the concept behind it, "So proud of my dad @dukagjinlipa who had an idea and a dream and is doing exactly what he said he would,” she wrote. “I'd like to think I got some of my persistence and hunger from both my parents who have shown me that hard work will always shine through."
