Alanis Morissette has pulled out of a huge concert in Manchester tonight as the singer battles an illness.

The Canadian star was set to perform at the AO Arena this evening, Saturday 25 June.

But she revealed in a video that she’s been struck down with laryngitis and is unable to sing.

Alanis also pulled out of her show in Leeds last night.

“Without it I wouldn’t have been able to croak through the show. 

“Tonight I thought I could push through again and I went for a nap and my voice, almost the entire range is gone, other than this lovely… anyway, I’m so sorry and I’m crestfallen.

“I’ve never cancelled a show because of larinytis before and I’m horrified, and I’m so sorry.

“But we’ll absolutely see you again and we’ll be back, we’ll figure out how to do that.

“In the meantime I love you, I’m so sorry, and um, I’ll rest and get better and see you soon.”
