In a statement issued Tuesday night, concert promoter Live Nation said Cher was unable to perform due to a “sudden short term illness” and that the concert would be postponed.
Fans are asked to hold on to their tickets and to not delete e-tickets from their phones.
Live Nation said tickets will be honoured once a rescheduled date is confirmed.
According to True North Sports and Entertainment, approximately 10,000 people were in attendance Tuesday night.
