Big Concerts, one of the shows’ organizers, wrote in a statement:
“It has been advised that in the best interests of Lady A’s Hillary Scott’s health and that of her twins, that the tour no longer go ahead in South Africa.”
The two dates in October have been officially cancelled, but the group hopes to make it up to South African audiences soon, reports the Boot.
The band said in their own statement:
“We are thrilled for Hillary and her precious twin girls, but want to share our deepest apologies to our fans. We have dreamed of performing in South Africa for years and can’t wait to make new plans to visit your beautiful country soon.”
