Sam Smith usually sings about heartbreak, but this time he broke thousands of hearts when he announced that he would be cancelling the remainder of his scheduled concerts in Cape Town.

If you watched the singer's first performance in the Mother City, you won't be surprise by the decision he made. Sam had to stop his performance after 45 minutes due to heavy voice strain.

The concert was off to a flying start but  after the singer disappeared for a few minutes, it was announced that the show would no longer be going on:

The "Dancing With a Stranger" hitmaker was still scheduled to perform another two concerts in Cape Town but after a medical examination, it was decided that caution would be the best approach and he was forced to cancel the remaining shows.

Big Concerts issued a statement on Wednesday afternoon, saying:

“This difficult decision was made after Sam sought advice from medical specialists and his team, and after having to cut his show short last night with concerns for his voice.”

“Sam is deeply upset that he is unable to perform for his fans in Cape Town but needs to rest at this time. Big Concerts wishes Sam a speedy recovery and hopes to welcome him back to Cape Town in the future.”

Despite the cancellation, fans were extremely understanding of the circumstances and Sam's health condition. Even after he cancelled his performance midway through the show, fans were thrilled with the 45 minutes they got to watch of him:

On behalf of everybody at ZAlebs, we wish Sam a speedy recovery and hope he comes back to South Africa soon! We also hope he got to enjoy some Shisa Nyama while he was here.
