Kane Brown has issued a statement to fans after being forced to make the “difficult decision” to abruptly cancel his Sunday evening (Jan. 29) concert in Berlin, Germany due to illness.

The “Like I Love Country Music” singer took to his Instagram stories to share the unfortunate news just hours before the show, which was scheduled to take place at Verti Music Hall in Berlin, DE, on Sunday, January 29.

“Hey Berlin – I’m so sorry to do this at such late notice but unfortunately we have to cancel tonight’s show,” Brown wrote. “I’ve been sick the last few days and have tried to power through. After seeing 2 doctors we had to make the difficult decision to cancel.”
