Big Concerts regrets to announce that the remaining Sam Smith shows on 17th and 18th April at the Grand Arena, GrandWest have been cancelled.

Sam is deeply upset that he is unable to perform for his fans in Cape Town but needs to rest at this time.

Big Concerts wishes Sam a speedy recovery and hopes to welcome him back to Cape Town in the future.
