George Ezra pulled out of a performance at London's O2 Arena on Tuesday after being diagnosed with acute vertigo.

A statement posted to Ezra's Twitter page read that the singer, known for hits including Shotgun, Budapest, and Green Green Grass, been feeling "incredibly unwell" ahead of the gig before seeking medical attention.

"He's been diagnosed by a doctor as having acute vertigo and as a result we sincerely regret to announce that tonight's show at the O2 in London will not be able to go ahead as planned," the statement read.

A follow-up statement issued shortly after said tickets for the cancelled performance will remain valid as they look to reschedule the show.

"We're very sorry for everyone who has travelled for tonight," the statement added.
