Los Angeles :Singer-actor Justin Timberlake has postponed a New York City concert to a later date due to health reasons.

The 33-year-old singer, who was slated to hit the stage at NYC`s Madison Square Garden yesterday, pushed back the concert to February 21, in the light of unspecified health reasons, reported Ace-Showbiz.

"Hey NY. There is never an easy way to do this... Unfortunately, I have to postpone tonight`s show to Friday due to health reasons. I am truly sorry to everyone that have tickets for tonight," Timberlake announced yesterday on Twitter.

"It kills me to have to do this. I hope to see you all on Friday," he added.

Tickets for the Wednesday concert "will be honoured at the door on Friday," read a statement on the singer`s website.

Refunds are available at point of purchase.

However, no light has been shed on the kind of illness Timberlake was facing that led him to cancel his concert.
