Paloma Faith has been forced to reschedule her show at Utilita Arena in Cardiff which was set to take place on Friday (April 19).

Faith made the decision on Thursday (April 18) to put off her Cardiff show just a day after she postponed her performance at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith just hours before going on stage.

The decision to postpone these shows comes due to the Only Love Can Hurt Like This and Lullaby singer contracting laryngitis.

Faith is currently on a UK tour which kicked off on April 3 in Reading, and is due to go on until May 19 before she embarks on a string of European gigs.

"My deepest apologies" - Paloma Faith cancels Cardiff gig

Faith issued a statement on her social media channels, including X (formerly Twitter) and Instagram, on Thursday revealing she had been forced to cancel her show at Utilita Arena in Cardiff on Friday under advice from medical professionals.

The statement read: "I am devastated to announce I have been advised by medical professionals not to perform my Cardiff show tomorrow (April 19) but reschedule.

"I am doing vocal rest, steaming, gargling, and I even had a steroid injection.

"At the moment it's one day at a time so will let you know tomorrow about Brighton but I don't want to do anything more than I want to do these shows and know that when you do come they will be the best show I can do for you.

"So far this tour has been incredible and I am dying to get on with it!

"This is the worst thing to have to do. And I can't apologise enough."
