Ne-Yo performed in Manchester yesterday but was forced to leave the stage after he broke down in tears reportedly due to some illness. He then stated that he had never stopped mid performance like this and said: “I will be back”. Above is some footage of the occurrence that you can check out.
BBC Manchester presenter Karen Gabay was at the concert and said Ne-Yo looked like he had a “really bad fever”.
She says Ne-Yo started his gig 30 minutes late and announced that he wasn’t feeling well quite early on.
“Even after the second song, for a man who is normally so cool, he was sweating.
“He was doing a Michael Jackson tribute and you could see that he was actually struggling to finish every musical phrase. He kept asking the audience to bear with him.
“Then he actually was crying. I thought it was because he had done a couple of Michael Jackson tributes and he was getting a little bit overcome, but it did seem a bit strange. He was very emotional”
