Due to “terrible” flu, Justin Timberlake cancels his one-night-only concert in London

The music star Justin Timberlake had to abruptly cancel his one-night-only show in London due to his flu symptoms becoming worse. On February 23, he was scheduled to perform his much anticipated show at the Roundhouse venue. The artist let fans down by saying he wasn’t in a “better place” to perform, which disappointed them.

One day before to the performance, Timberlake posted a video on his now-vanished Instagram stories detailing his worsening health. But he assured his supporters that he would make amends the “next time.” Justin Timberlake reportedly had the flu earlier this month.

On X (previously Twitter), the video announcing Justin Timberlake’s gig cancelation has been making the rounds. The 43-year-old practically welcomed his supporters as he sat in front of the camera, explaining that it was a “unfortunate video” that he had to send out. “I’m sure you can tell from the sound of things that I am not going to be able to make it to the show on Friday, which I’m gutted about,” the singer said, gesturing to his hoarse voice.

In addition, Justin Timberlake said that he had spent the previous week in London in preparation for his performance on February 23 at the Roundhouse Theatre, saying he was “so excited” about it. He said, “As you may or may not know, I’ve been battling some kind of bug,” adding that although he felt better, his condition had really “taken a turn for the worse.”

When he announced his attendance at The Graham Norton Show the night before his performance, Justin Timberlake said that he almost missed it. He managed to “power through” the event, but when he woke up the next morning, his flu symptoms became worse.

After expressing regret to his followers, Timberlake promised to rock the “Roundhouse one more time” if his health gets better. But I feel awful right now. I’m hoping that nobody contracts this illness. He ended by saying, “Thank you, love you guys, and I’ll see you next time.”

Regarding his itinerary, People notes that Justin Timberlake’s Forget Tomorrow World Tour stop will take him to London’s O2 Arena in August. Additionally, he is anticipating the March 15 release of his most recent album, Everything I Thought It Was. Drown, Timberlake’s most recent song, was released on February 23.
