British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has just announced the cancellation of his upcoming concert in Jakarta, which was scheduled to be held on Nov. 9, following a cycling accident in London last week.
In a video uploaded on his official Facebook account, Sheeran apologized to his fans and said it was a difficult decision to make. “I hope everyone understands this,” Sheeran said. “We’re going to work pretty hard to come back and believe me when I say I really, really do want to come back.”
Following the announcement, Indonesian netizens expressed disappointment on social media and shared stories of when they queued in line to buy the concert tickets.
