Ed Sheeran Cancels Las Vegas Concert at the Last Minute, Angering Fans Waiting in 100-Degree Temperatures

Ed Sheeran canceled his Las Vegas concern less than an hour before it was scheduled to begin Saturday, angering fans who waited in 100-degree temperatures to watch the musical artist.

Sheeran posted a message to Instagram explaining the problem with some of the equipment for the concert.

“I can’t believe I’m typing this but there’s been some challenges encountered during the load in of our vegas show. It’s impossible to go forward with the show," he wrote.

"I’m so sorry. I know everyone has travelled (sic) in for this and I wish I could change it. The gig will be postponed to Saturday October 28th and all purchased tickets will be valid for that date. I’m so, so sorry,” he added.

"There was zero reason to force fans to sit outside in 102 degrees with no water, little shade and zero communication. Watched fans passing out and vomiting. Unacceptable. And then to have the venue overcharge for water is disgusting," one disgruntled fan wrote on Instagram, according to Fox News.

"Nah man. Your team kept everyone sitting outside in 100°+ blistering heat. Fans were literally passing out. Then they opened the gates (an hour late) and had the balls to open the merch tables and concession stands. Taking more of our money without saying it was cancelled! Shame on you. You owe us more than a future show we can't even go to," another person commented.

The cancelation is one of multiple major concerts to shut down at the last moment to anger fans who have often traveled at major expense to attend.

For example, Lionel Ritchie recently canceled his concert an hour after its scheduled time, citing severe weather.

Rapper 50 Cent also canceled an August concert in Phoenix, Arizona, as temperatures pushed 110 degrees in the area.

The situation was frustrating for fans though it appears Sheeran was given no option to go on with the show in the Las Vega situation.
