Halsey leaves Calgary show early, cancels Edmonton show due to family emergency

WATCH: Global viewer Angela Leong captured this performance footage at Calgary’s Saddledome Nov. 14, 2017 before Halsey left the stage, cancelling the rest of the show due to a personal emergency.


American singer-songwriter Halsey left her Saddledome concert after performing about a half dozen songs Tuesday night in Calgary.

The Edmonton show set for Wednesday night has also been cancelled.

“Due to a personal emergency, Halsey will be unable to perform tonight at Rogers Place in Edmonton,” Live Nation said in a press release.

“Tickets purchased online and by telephone will be refunded automatically.”

Live Nation entertainment company said ticket holders who bought tickets in person are eligible for a refund at their point-of-purchase.

A request to Live Nation for further details was not immediately answered.

The Saddledome emptied out earlier than expected when Halsey cancelled her concert Nov. 14, 2017.
