The Scottish singer contracted a virus over Christmas when he was in
We had hoped that his condition would recover sufficiently to allow him to perform live shows in
As he has been recommended to completely recover he won't be able to perform for the foreseeable future and he has been advised by his doctor not to commit to anything further at least until the end of February.
If youve got an ear infection, the last thing you want to be doing is flying and then and doing gigs, because thats when you could do some proper irreparable damage, he said.
The 23 year old producer admitted hes recently started wearing earplugs at gigs, and admitted hed recently tested his hearing on an online website, after noticing a slight ringing in his ears when he tries to sleep at home.
It sounds obvious, but you only get one set of ears and the damage you cause to them is irreversible. If making a few small changes like wearing plugs now and again and not caning the volume to much on my headphones is enough to save me some major problems in 30 years time, Im all for it. Its not a risk I want to take anymore, he added.
