Engelbert Humperdinck had been gearing up for his Valentine’s Day live stream ready to go at 2pm PST (10pm GMT) today. The 85-year-old was hoping to talk about his love songs and what they mean to people in the special broadcast. But now a statement cancelling the event has been shared on the singer’s official Twitter account.
The statement read: “We regret to inform you that today’s Valentine’s Day Live Stream on Engelbert’s YouTube Channel has been cancelled. Unfortunately, a fatal accident took a close member of his family late last night. Engelbert is heartbroken and too distressed to celebrate today’s holiday. Due to these unforeseen circumstances, we will have to reschedule a Live Stream for a later date. Engelbert asks your forgiveness and appreciates your understanding.”
Fans were quick to send their love in the comments, sharing how so very sorry they were to hear such sad news.
At the time he tweeted: “My Dear Fans, I am so upset in having to relate to you that we have to cancel our UK tour. I have come down with a viral bronchial infection & am being treated for it now. This has never happened before and I so much wanted to see all of you in the 14 cities. We are going to reschedule the shows for early next year. Stay well and remember……I love you.”
