British singer-songwriter Raye has been forced to pull out of an appearance at a Glasgow gig on Thursday due to illness.

The four time Brit award-nominated singer was due to support R&B star SZA at her OVO Hydro performance on June 15, but announced that she had been ill since playing Parklife festival in Manchester on Saturday.

Apologising to fans on Twitter, the Escapism singer wrote: “I am going to have to pull out of Glasgow opening for SZA. I have been on an intense course of steroids and medicines since Parklife and nothing is working right now. I have been on four tours, non-stop since January, with 133 shows scheduled this year alone.

“I’ve pushed myself a little too hard. I would never cancel shows unless I had no choice and this is the case. I am pretty devastated, I’m on strict vocal rest and just going to try and get better as soon as I can so I can resume all my commitments. I am so deeply, deeply sorry.”

The OVO Hydro wished the singer a speedy recovery, and added: “Sadly Raye won’t be able to join us in Glasgow tomorrow night. Wishing you swift recovery Raye, and I’m sure we’ll see you back at the OVO Hydro one day!”
