Payne said:

“It’s with a heavy heart I have to tell you that we have no other choice but to postpone my upcoming tour of South America,” “Over the past week I’ve been in hospital with a serious kidney infection, it’s something I wouldn’t wish on anyone, and doctors orders are that I now need to rest and recover.”

He continued,

“I was beyond excited to come play for you guys. To all of you who have bought tickets: I’m so sorry. We’re working to re-schedule the tour as soon as we possibly can, but for now we will be refunding the tickets — so please look out for updates from your point of purchase. Thanks as always for the love and support, and look forward to seeing you soon.”

Payne revealed in a video message to his followers that he had been “a little bit unwell recently” and had already begun tour preparations. The tour was scheduled to start on September 1 in Lima, Peru.
