Usher’s New Zealand concert has been delayed by a week, potentially disrupting the plans of hundreds of fans who already have tickets for the Auckland-only concert.
The Frontier Touring Company said the American R’n’B super star’s concert, scheduled for March 29, had “for logistical reasons” been pushed back by a week until April 5.
This comes after Usher pulled out of the opening concert in Berlin, Germany on January 12, after falling ill with a sinus infection. The “Yeah!” hitmaker was scheduled to perform at the city’s O2 World venue, but scrapped the gig at the last minute after he was diagnosed with a paranasal sinus infection, according to local reports.
The company said tickets purchased for March 29 remain valid for the April 5 concert and do not need to be exchanged. However fans who had booked flights or accommodation for the March 29 concert could be left out of pocket with the date no longer valid. Frontier says any fans who are unable to attend the concert on the new date should contact Ticketmaster or the original ticketing outlet for a refund no later than February 28.
