I don't know if I'm just being cynical here but I imagine this is total bullshit. I think that his label probably thought he'd have a single out by now, and for whatever reason, it's been delayed, and subsequently they've forced him to pull out of this gig.

I know that Little Mix debuted 'Wings' at T4 on the Beach last year, but I don't think they'd let James Arthur debut his single at a performance that probably won't be televised. They'll wait for him to debut it on X Factor, following a Vevo release and whatever.

Am I just being too cynical here? Do you think he genuinely has an illness?

He has already performed the single at gigs, hasn't he?

His set was probably sounding like crap so they didn't want to risk a negative reaction.

The last live performance of the single got a very positive reaction, even from some non fans.

He should've given it a go anyway, just so I could comment 'He sounds no different...'.

So he's performed the song already? I wasn't aware of this.

Well I have to disagree! I saw him at Cornbury in early July, where he performed some of his new songs and he was excellent. Most of the crowd ( and there were a lot came to watch him) seemed to enjoy his set. I was never a big fan but I thought he was great, as did most people I have spoken to since.
