The musician shocked fans when they stopped their show in Manchester on Wednesday night just four songs in.

‘Doctors have advised due to a vocal cord injury, Sam must have complete vocal rest.
‘Sam is heartbroken to have had to cancel these shows but they have been told by doctors that if they keep singing, they will do permanent damage to their voice.
‘If they take some rest they will be able to perform again.’
On Wednesday the performer took to the stage at Manchester’s AO arena but proceedings were cancelled after just four songs.
Sam later took to Instagram where they said: ‘Dearest sailors. I don’t know what to say honestly.
‘I fought off a virus a few weeks ago and since then we have travelled across Europe and had such incredible shows.’
They added: ‘Today in soundcheck I felt fine and was so excited to give Manchester an amazing show tonight, with a special surprise at the end during my third song, I noticed something wrong with my voice.’
‘I prayed it was just my voice waking up for the show but into the fourth song I could feel something was really wrong I came off stage and have tried everything to get my voice back in gear but it won’t I am honestly heartbroken I couldn’t finish the show tonight for you all.’
Sam concluded their message: ‘I love you all. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry.’
Glasgow and Birmingham had been cancelled as Sam was ‘really not well’ with a virus and were rescheduled for later this month, however they will now not go ahead.
