Singer Delta Goodrem has assured fans she will be fit enough to perform at her scheduled concerts next week, despite suffering nasty burns to her legs in a bizarre accident last Friday.
Ms Goodrem was forced to abandon a concert at Sydney's State Theatre on Friday night, after succumbing to the injuries suffered when she spilt boiling water from a humidifier onto herself.
"Unfortunately the pain and effects from treating the burns got greater and greater as the night progressed and ultimately there came a point that I could not continue performing," Ms Goodrem said in a statement.
"I want everyone to know that I am recovering well and will be in fine form for my forthcoming Melbourne shows next week. Thank you again for your support and understanding."
Promoter Paul Dainty said patrons at the Sydney concert would be entitled to a 50 per cent refund.
"Delta showed incredible courage and dedication to her fans by soldiering on through the pain and dizziness to perform a brilliant first hour of her show to a full house at the Sydney State Theatre," Mr Dainty said.
"We are all just so proud of her trying to do the best for her fans and at least deliver half of her show under such difficult circumstances."
Ticketmaster will contact all patrons regarding the refund procedure.
Ms Goodrem is due to play at the Hamer Hall at the Melbourne Arts Centre on Wednesday, November 7 and Thursday, November 8.
