“I can’t believe I’m writing this, but we ran into some challenges loading our show in Vegas. It is impossible to continue with the show. I am so sorry. I know everyone traveled for this and I wish I could change it. The performance will be rescheduled for Saturday, October 28th and all tickets purchased will remain valid for that day. I’m so, so sorry,” Sheeran wrote in a statement on Instagram.

“There was no reason to force fans to sit outside in 102 degrees with no water, little shade and no communication. I saw fans faint and vomit. Unacceptable. And then it’s disgusting that the venue charges too much water,” one angry fan wrote on Instagram.

“Nah man. Her team made sure everyone sat outside in the blistering heat of over 100°C. The fans literally swooned. Then they opened the gates (an hour late) and had the balls to open the merch tables and concession stands. Take more of us.” “You owed us money without saying the show was canceled! Shame on you. You owe us more than a future show we can’t even go to,” another person commented.

“Thanks for nothing. My wife and daughters missed this concert and can’t just show up in October. Weekend ruined. #lostafan #badweekend,” one user said.

Other fans played peacekeepers in the comments section, suggesting that Sheeran must have had a legitimate reason for canceling the concert.

“Comments must be calmed down. Don’t you understand that there were major safety concerns to the point where he HAD to cancel? It’s not his fault that, as you know, you decided to fly to another city for a concert.” “I would be in the heat without preparing,” one person remarked.

“Give Ed your patience and kindness. No man puts his heart on stage more than this guy!!!!” another wrote.
