Kane Brown has canceled the final date of his international Drunk or Dreaming Tour as he continues to battle an illness.
The “Thank God” singer took to his Instagram stories to share the unfortunate news with fans via a statement. The show was scheduled to take place at Berns in Stockholm, Sweden on Tuesday, January 31.
“Stockholm – Unfortunately, we have to cancel tomorrow night’s show,” Brown wrote. ”I have been very sick over the past few days and the doctors have said that I will not be able to perform tomorrow.”
He continued to explain that he hopes to return to Sweden soon and that tickets will be automatically refunded at the point of purchase.
“I’m upset I won’t be able to see you guys and play for you. Tickets will be automatically refunded at point of purchase. Hopefully we’ll be back soon and will make it up to you.”
The news comes one day after Brown was forced to make the “difficult decision” to abruptly cancel his concert in Berlin, Germany.
“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.”
Hours after canceling his Berlin concert, Kane Brown took to Twitter to further elaborate on his illness.
“Man When sickness brings you to tears like wtf, 😭” Brown said. He later added, “103 fever is a hangover ? Damn.”
Kane Brown was in the midst of finishing out the international dates of his headlining Drunk or Dreaming Tour, which kicked off on September 17 in Melbourne, VIC at Margaret Court Arena. The trek featured special guests Restless Road, Jessie James Decker, Blanco Brown and Chris Lane on select dates.
The international trek marked Brown’s first time touring in Australia and New Zealand and his long-awaited return to Canada and Europe.
The country hitmaker will soon bring the Drunk or Dreaming Tour to the United States in March.

While embarking on the massive headlining trek throughout the United States, Brown will headline Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for the first time ever on March 31.
