Multi-platinum singer and songwriter Jason Derulo suffered an injury to his neck on Tuesday, January 3, and has been forced to cancel all touring and promotional activities. Jason’s date at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on Saturday February 25 has been cancelled.

The 22-year-old Miami native injured himself while training for his upcoming World Tour in support of his current album Future History, which was scheduled to commence in Glasgow on February 23rd. While executing an acrobatic move, Derulo landed directly on his head, and suffered an acute fracture to his vertebra. After being rushed to Memorial West Hospital in Miami’s Pembroke Pines, FL, he was told by doctors that the accident could have left him paralyzed. Derulo has been released from the hospital but must wear a neck brace for the next few months.

“To all my fans who planned to come to the Future History World tour, the pain of letting you down cuts me way deeper than this injury I’ve sustained. My fans mean everything to me, so I’m praying for a speedy recovery in order to perform for you in the near future.”

Customers who booked tickets to Jason Derulo’s show at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on Saturday February 25 are asked to return the tickets to the point of purchase for a full refund.
