Zayn Malik seems to be playing Dubai fans instead of playing for them.

Malik has cancelled his upcoming solo gig in Dubai less than a month before he was set to take the stage at the Autism Rocks Arena

Concert organizer 117Live announced the news.

"I feel I am making progress, but I have today acknowledged that I do not feel sufficiently confident to move forward with the planned show in Dubai in October,” Malik said in a statement .

The former One Direction heart throb blames "extreme anxiety."

Some made pretty dramatic travel plans

We wish Zayn Malik a speedy recovery, even if he did break our hearts.

In 2015, just weeks before One Direction was headed out for a concert in Dubai (first ever in the Middle East)... Malik left the group.


Although the show went on, Malik did not make an appearance.


The news comes just a week after Selena Gomez cancelled her Dubai concert because of her battle with Lupus. Let's hope Elton John doesn't cancel, too.
