On Friday (8.25,) Liam Payne took to social media to confirm the postponement of his tour.
Confirming his hospitalization, the former member of One Direction stated:
“It’s with a heavy heart I have to tell you that we have no other choice but to postpone my upcoming tour of South America.” “Over the past week I’ve been in hospital with a serious kidney infection, it’s something I wouldn’t wish on anyone, and doctors orders are that I now need to rest and recover.”
“I was beyond excited to come play for you guys.” “To all of you who have bought tickets: I’m so sorry. We’re working to re-schedule the tour as soon as we possibly can, but for now we will be refunding the tickets – so please look out for updates from your point of purchase.”
Accompanying the post on Instagram was a video message from Payne on X with the singer stating “This really is the last news that I want to tell you.” “I’ve just been advised that now is really not the right time to be out on the road trying to recover from this. I have the best people around me trying to help me to recover as I speak. But yeah we’re going to have to reschedule it all.”
Liam Payne was set to perform in Peru, Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Mexico in September.
