That’s really bad luck: ESC singer Malik Harris has to interrupt his tour due to illness.

Only on Saturday was the defeat at the Eurovision Song Contest, two days later the start of the Germany tour – and now the singer Malik Harris (“Rockstars”) is sick in bed.

“I’m so exhausted,” wrote the 24-year-old on Wednesday in his story on Instagram. “I woke up with a crazy headache and dizziness, like my body was telling me I needed a break.” In addition, the musician from the Upper Bavarian town of Landsberg am Lech posted a photo in which he buries himself in the duvet.

The singer therefore canceled his concert on Tuesday evening in Dresden. “I am so sorry. I hope you’re not too disappointed,” he wrote to his fans. But of course he will come back, “as soon as possible, I promise !!”. It was initially unclear when Harris would be fit again. The next performance in Cologne was already planned for Thursday, followed by Nuremberg, Stuttgart and Munich.

Harris competed for Germany at the ESC on Saturday with his song “Rockstars”, but ended up in last place, like many of his German predecessors at the ESC.

The 24-year-old bears his bankruptcy at the competition in Italy with dignity. “I’m really, really happy that Ukraine won because I wanted it that way,” he announced that evening in Turin, underpinning his words with a Ukraine flag that he had previously stuck to the back of his guitar had glued.
