“I understand you may be disappointed, as I am, especially regarding Salt Lake City this weekend,” he wrote. “I know you may have had tickets for close to two years and made plans that are difficult to change. Please know this is a huge blow to me, and I am very sorry for the effects it will have on all of you. I am working hard and looking forward to being back as soon as I can give you the show you deserve.”
