Neyo Cries On Stage, Ne Yo Explains Tearful Performance

July 19, 2009

During a live performance in Manchester, England on July 16 2009, R and B singer Neyo broke down in tears. Did Ne Yo fall ill? Did the superstar have to go to the bathroom? What prompted Neyo’s cries on stage? Read on to find out the reason why for the singer’s breakdown as NeYo explains his tearful performance. See photos and video here.



After having broken down at a show in Manchester, Neyo explains to Global Grind the reasoning behind his tears. Read what he has to say below.

Neyo explains, “I’m currently on tour in the UK. … We’re in a different city in a different part of the U.K. every night, moving non stop. I have an issue with not knowing when to say enough is enough, so last night in Manchester, my body said it for me. My voice couldn’t take it. From the first song I knew something was wrong. I shoulda stopped there, but I come from a school where no matter what, the show must go on. It wasn’t until about 4 songs in that I came to the painful realization that my voice was done, literally nothing left, and that I would have to stop the show.”

“I’ve never had to stop a show, never dreamed I’d ever have to. So when I had to walk out on that stage and tell 12,000 of the people responsible for making me who I am that I could not perform for them, it literally broke my heart. I cried harder than I have in a very long time with no shame whatsoever. To the people of Manchester, know that I love you and I thank you for being so understanding and supportive. And I promise you that you will receive the show deserved. Thanks to the fans for the love and concern.”

The apology is appreciated I am sure, but will the fans be completely forgiving?
