Justin Timberlake cancelled a performance at New York’s Madison Square Garden yesterday, just hours before show time. He told fans that he’d been advised not to sing after damaging his vocal chords.

In a post on Instagram, he wrote: “I’m sorry to announce I have to postpone the show at MSG tonight on doctor’s orders. My vocal chords are severely bruised. I’m gonna make this up to you and the new show will be on my birthday, 31 Jan … Again, I’m so sorry to do this, but excited to see you soon”.

Timberlake performed at the venue on Monday, with a show that had been postponed from March, when it was pulled due to poor weather conditions. Madison Square Garden has said that tickets for last night’s show will be valid at the new January date.
