A statement from Jessie J was published on the Academy's Facebook page.

I am sad to inform you that I will not be able to do my opening show in Glasgow today.

Unfortunately I have woken up with a throat infection.

I am so sad as I love all my Scottish fans, you are the best.

The show will be rescheduled to Sunday February 1 so I look forward to seeing you all then.

– Jessie J

An Academy spokesman said all tickets for tonight's show would be valid for the new date. Anyone who cannot make it will be eligible to claim a refund from the point of purchase.
