Zayn Malik's cancelled a upcoming performance at Dubai's Autism Rocks Arena on October 7th since he does not feel 'sufficiently confident' to go ahead with the show due to 'extreme anxiety.'
Zayn pulled out of his Capital FM Summertime Ball slot earlier this year for the same reason, and he's now told fans he doesn't feel comfortable with 'major live solo performance' despite making 'progress' with his anxiety struggles.
Releasing a statement, Zayn explained: "Dear Fans
I have been working over the last three months to overcome my extreme anxiety around major live solo performances I feel I am making progress but I have today acknowledged that I do not feel sufficiently confident to move forward with the planned show in Dubai in October.
I am assured that all tickets will be refunded.
I am truly sorry to disappoint you. I hope to see you all soon.
Thank you to all my fans who support me globally.
With love and respect always,
Speaking of he cancelation, 117Live CEO Tom Ovesen said: "Whilst disappointed not to be hosting the planned Oct 7th. Dubai concert we appreciate Zayn's honest apologies and wish him all the best for the future.
"We will be looking forward to sharing more of Zayn's plans with his Middle East fans when we have such information and will now get the ticket refund process started!! See you all at our other events at the Autism Rocks Arena!"
Get well soon, el Maliko.
