George Ezra has been forced to postpone his concert at Leeds Arena.

Ezra had been scheduled to perform in London on Tuesday 14 March and Leeds on Thursday 16 March, however he has pulled out of both dates due to illness.

The 29-year-old singer songwriter is currently in the middle of a huge UK and European headline tour in support of his third and most recent album Gold Rush Kid, which was released last year.

Ezra is best known for a range of popular hits such as Green Green Grass, Budapest, Shotgun and Blame It on Me. But why did George Ezra pull out of his Leeds and London concerts and what has the Budapest singer said about tickets?

Here is everything you need to know.

Why has George Ezra postponed his Leeds show?

George Ezra postponed his show at the First Direct Arena in Leeds after suffering from acute vertigo.

Ezra tweeted: “Hi everyone, unfortunately although George’s symptoms are improving, he is still experiencing acute vertigo. Upon a further consultation with a doctor this morning, his show at the First Direct Arena in Leeds tonight will not be able to go ahead as planned.”

The Budapest singer was also forced to pull out of his London show earlier in the week on Tuesday 14 March due to the same illness.

The 29-year-old told fans that his symptoms are slowly improving and he has confirmed plans to reschedule both shows.

Ezra added: “Fortunately, we have been able to reschedule both of the postponed shows. George’s show at the First Direct Arena in Leeds will now take place on Wednesday 5 April 2023. And George’s show at The O2 Arena in London will now take place on Thursday 6 April 2023.

“Again, we would like to apologise for the postponements of both the London and Leeds date, and for everyone who had travelled in advance to the shows. All tickets will remain valid for the new dates and we really hope you can make it.

“Thank you for all your well wishes to George.”

What is acute vertigo?

Acute Vertigo is a sensation which makes a person feel that themselves or the environment around them is spinning. The NHS website explains that the feeling can be barely noticeable, but in extreme cases it can be so severe that people find it difficult to keep their balance and do everyday tasks.

Attacks of vertigo can develop suddenly and last for a few seconds or they can sometimes last for longer periods of around a few days. Symptoms of vertigo can include loss of balance, feeling sick and dizziness.
