Jessie J Concert Cancelled

More News

Ponty's Big Weekend Friday event is cancelled

Jessie J has pulled out of the opening night of Ponty's Big Weekend in south Wales after being hit by a virus.

Organisers said she was suffering from the CMV virus "which has caused her considerable fatigue".

Organisers statement

Following a visit to her doctor this morning, blood tests have revealed that Jessie J is suffering from CMV, a virus which has caused her considerable fatigue. Doctors have advised that the exertion of performances this weekend would be likely to prolong the recovery period.

Therefore tonight’s opening night of Ponty’s Big weekend has been cancelled by the organisers Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council and event promoters Orchard Media and Events Group.

Christian Hanagan, Head of Strategy, Public Relations & Tourism at Rhondda Cynon Taf Council said: “It is with regret that the Council in collaboration with the promoter Orchard has taken the decision to cancel this evening’s concert due to Jessie J’s ill health.

“We wish Jessie well in her treatment and hope she is back on her feet soon. Though today’s event will not take place, Ponty’s Big Weekend will start tomorrow with a full programme as advertised, with Olly Murs headlining, and on Sunday Alfie Boe will head up the planned programme as scheduled.

“All tickets for the Jessie J concert will be fully refunded from Monday July 23.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience this decision causes, and to Jessie’s fans who were looking forward to the event, but I’m sure they will understand that this is the only decision that could be taken under the circumstances. It’s also a great disappointment to us, as we were really looking forward to the concert.”

Anyone currently at the concert or on the way to the concert is advised to make their way home in an orderly fashion, or to approach a steward or member of the security staff on site to make plans to leave the site, particularly those under 16.”
