According to international entertainment sites on Friday, Usher was forced to cancel his Wednesday concert in Berlin due to ‘sinus complication’ at the last minute and re-scheduled it on Thursday.

However, the 32-year old singer did not manage to finish the re-scheduled concert and left the stage after apologizing to the crowd, which voiced out mixed reactions, as shown in the YouTube video below uploaded by a certain OnlyOneBerlin.

Apparently, the singer was reported to have been suffering illness even before the canceled Wednesday concert, and tried to make a comeback on Thursday but his health did not allow him.

“I deeply regret having to reschedule the shows. I am truly sorry for any inconvenience I have caused my fans.” Usher said in a statement released Friday.

“My fans are the best in the world and I am looking forward to getting better so that I can give them the show they deserve.” He added.

According to MTV, a follow-up statement from Usher’s spokesperson confirmed that he was too ill to perform while performing that night (Thursday) and next three dates will be re-scheduled.

The Rotterdam show that has an original schedule this week was to March 1, while the show in Antwerp, also scheduled this week, will be on March 7.
