LOGAN – Utah State University students were looking forward to another End of Year Bash. The annual event, which was scheduled for Saturday night, usually brings a big name into the Spectrum for a concert, but it won’t be happening this year.

Past concerts have included Sean Kingston, MKTO and American Idol winner Scotty McCreery, but this year’s headliner Charlie Puth announced Tuesday he would not be able to attend.

“I’m extremely upset to have had to cancel all of our shows this week. Unfortunately, I’ve been sick for the last week and am unable to sing, let alone speak without vocal pain,” Puth said in a in a statement to the university.

Puth is well known for his songs “Marvin Gaye” and “See You Again.” He said he hopes to make it up to the students soon, and USU’s Student Events Office said they are working to reschedule. According to the university, all purchased tickets will be refunded. If a ticket was purchased with a card online, it will automatically be refunded. Anyone who purchased a ticket in person will need to return to obtain a refund.
