N Dubz Cancels London Gig Five Minutes After Scheduled Time

By Emily Caulkett-

Hip-hop trio N-Dubz has announced tonight’s scheduled gig in London will go ahead, just hours after the group’s Nottingham show was cancelled at the last minute. Fans of the group spoke of how they waited in the cold for the concert at the Motorpoint Arena, which was called off after the supporting acts had performed.

Frustrated fans waiting for hours inside the Motorpoint Arena were disappointed to learn that the band would not be taking to the stage for the latest show on their comeback tour, with an on-screen statement blaming it on ‘an artist’s illness’.

The London group – comprising Dappy, Fazer and Tulisa – were set to perform at the city’s Motorpoint Arena as part of their current UK tour, which marks their first run of live dates together in 11 years.

Sharing a statement at 9:12pm yesterday, a spokesperson for the venue announced that N-Dubz would not be performing as planned “due to artist illness”. The concert will be rescheduled for a later date.

N-Dubz then shared a tweet at 10:30pm to apologise. “We’re so sorry we had to cancel the show tonight,” they wrote. “We tried to do everything possible to make the show happen, but a doctor advised at the very last minute that Dappy was unable to perform and needed to rest tonight…

“We had to take this advice seriously and consider Dappy’s health so that the rest of the tour can happen, which has so far has been amazing.”

It also comes just hours after Dappy had posted on Instagram that his ‘voice was basically gone’ and he was struggling with a ‘chest infection.

In a statement on its social media channels, N-Dubz members Tulisa, Fazer and Dappy also confirmed its Nottingham gig would be rescheduled, including dates. The statement read: “We are pleased to confirm that the show will go ahead tonight.

“We are so sorry to have let so many fans down in Nottingham last night, but we are pleased to confirm that the show has been rescheduled to December 7th. Tickets from last night are still valid for the new date.”

“It was very very frustrating and I’m angry,” she said. “We’d been stood out in the cold for hours.”

Responding to complaints put to N-Dubz by the Mirror, the band said a doctor advised Dappy at the very last minute that he was unable to perform. “We had to take this advice seriously and consider Dappy’s health so that the rest of the tour can happen, which has so far been amazing,” they said.
