They’re gearing up for a showstopping headlining performance at Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras over the weekend.
But on Friday, singer Sam Smith revealed their concerns over the global health crisis, Coronavirus, during their appearance on The Project.
‘I literally just texted mum saying, ‘I’m really scared about the Coronavirus,” the 27-year-old hit-maker told host Carrie Bickmore, before adding: ‘I’m scared’.
‘You’re girt by sea here so, you’re safe!’ Carrie, 39, responded, in an attempt to reassure the star.
Sam then replied: ‘Yeah, but I’ve got to go back to Europe and I’m hearing that it is going nuts. Are you kidding me? I don’t like it.’
Elsewhere in the interview, Sam was left feeling flustered, after accidentally letting slip that Australian fans can expect a tour later this year.
[I’m touring] This year at some point..,’ before the Dancing With a Stranger singer looked over at his publicist.
‘Yeah. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that, but it’s obvious…’ Sam laughed off before shrugging at the camera.
To which Carrie responded by saying: ‘Promo tour, tour soon’.
The Grammy award-winner is currently in Australia promoting their upcoming album while headlining Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras on Saturday, February 29.
Sam touched down in Sydney on Monday, and spoke of their enthusiasm for their upcoming performance on Instagram soon after
‘Sydney. I’m home, and I can’t wait for this weekend. I’m a Mardi Gras virgin and I’m ready for my cherry to be popped,’ Sam wrote in the caption.
