"The entire range of my voice is gone today, I thought I could push through like we did last night.

Another added: "I hope she feels better soon, I understand these things happen. However when you’ve been travelling since noon, it’s not the best news!"

First Direct Arena said that ticket holders will be automatically refunded to the method of payment used for purchase.
