“To all my fans in DC/Maryland/Virginia and Philadelphia/South Jersey, I want to personally apologize,” Legend wrote. “I’ve gotten sick and need a few days to recover and rest my voice.”

“I’m so sorry for the inconvenience,” Legend added. “I will get healthy and look forward to spending the evening with you as soon as possible.”
