It’s been a pretty tough time for Aussie grime fans this week, with Stormzy cancelling his forthcoming Listen Out appearances just days after fellow UK star Skepta scrapped his tour down under. The ‘Shut Down’ star was set to kick off his festival run in Melbourne tomorrow, but it’s not just Aussie fans who were left broken-hearted following this announcement. The rapper has cancelled all remaining headline and festival dates (bar one) for 2016. And while they have been vocal with their disappointment online, Stormzy has also voiced his feelings with an apologetic Instagram post. In it, he reiterates how much he loves touring and that he hopes fans would understand how serious the situation would be in order for him to have to cut his year short.
Here’s hoping that things look up for the big man, and we get wind of those rescheduled dates ASAP.
