Hong Kong's biggest music festival, Clockenflap, cancelled due to Covid-19

Ed Sheeran posted on Instagram that he would make it up to HK fans, after his concert was cancelled.

Ed Sheeran has just announced on his Instagram that he will make up for yesterday's cancelled concert "before the year ends".

 The second of his two Hong Kong gigs, as part of his Divide World tour, was cancelled more than two hours after the event was due to have started. Despite the Hong Kong Observatory issuing the thunderstorm warning at 5.05pm, the concert was announced to be only "delayed" at around 8.45pm, with the cancellation announced at around 9.15pm.

Fans were obviously disappointed, with many of them taking to social media to express their annoyance. Although the organisers said on the HK Ticketing website that full refunds would be available, Ed's announcement that he will "make it up to" his Hong Kong fans is likely a much more appealing outcome.

This is the second time many local fans have missed out on seeing their idol; Sheeran's HK tour dates were cancelled in 2017 after he broke one arm and seriously injured the other in a biking accident.
