The Norwegian singer has had to cancel tonight's show, at the Sea Sessions festival, held in the Co. Donegal surfing town of Bundoran...
Sigrid took to Twitter this afternoon, to share the news that she had been advised by her doctor not to perform at the Dundoran festival, where she was due to headline this evening.
In a statement, the young Norwegian star, whose full name is Sigrid Solbakk Raabe – who broke through with her debut EP Don't Kill My Vibe in 2017 – wrote:
"first of all, I want you to know how much I hate writing this. I've been so excited about performing at Sea Sessions - this was my very first festival headline outside my home country...the doctor has again advised me to not perform tonight. there's nothing I can do about it, I just need to rest. I am so sorry I won't see you tonight, and I hope you understand I'm trying my best to get back in shape as soon as possible. I really hope I'll get to come back another time. x"

We're wishing all the best to Sigrid. As a performer, she has always held Ireland in high regard – and Ireland has reciprocated. Her debut album Sucker Punch reached No.4 in the Irish charts – its joint highest position anywhere in the world (along with the UK), except for her native Norway, where she topped the charts.
