TAMPA, Fla. — Pop star Ariana Grande has postponed her Tampa concert for Tuesday night.

According to concert officials, the pop star's Sweetener World Tour dates for Tampa on May 28 and May 29 in Orlando have been postponed due to illness.

The new show dates will be November 24 in Tampa and November 25 in Orlando.

The singer posted a story on Instagram apologizing to her fans.

"I woke up incredibly sick today, ran to my doctor here and have been told to postpone these shows tonight. [I'm] so beyond devastated," she said on Instagram.

"Confused, sad, a little mad," said fan Veronica Ramos.

Ramos and her family flew to Tampa from Puerto Rico just for the big show. Ramos' mother gifted the 16-year-old tickets for Christmas. It would have been her first concert.

"We are so disappointed for what happened," said Ramos' mother, Mayra Benitez.

Tickets for both Florida shows can be used for the new dates. Refunds are available for those who already have the tickets, according to Live Nation.
