The singer of Only Love Can Hurt Like This, Cry on the Dance Floor, and Picking Up the Pieces, is due to take to the stage at Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage on Sunday evening, though there has been no confirmation that any other upcoming concerts will be affected.

In a statement to fans, Paloma Faith said: “I have sought advice from medical professionals, they have advised that I need to rest my voice and that means I’ve had to cancel tonight’s show.

“I’m so sorry to everyone who bought tickets, I’ve loved being on the road and seeing all your gorgeous faces and I’m gutted I won’t be dancing with you tonight.”

Bradley Stacey was another music fan who had a ticket for Paloma Faith’s Summer Sessions show, he told the Echo: “I was very disappointed to hear that tonight’s concert has been cancelled.

“I hope it can be rescheduled in the future.”
