Los Angeles - Justin Timberlake cancelled his sold-out concert in New York City on Wednesday night.

The Mirrors hitmaker was forced to pull the plug on his scheduled show at Madison Square Garden, as part of his 20/20 Experience World Tour, at the eleventh hour after coming down with a mystery illness.

Hours before the gig was due to take place, the 33-year-old star announced he wouldn't be performing on Twitter, tweeting: "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."

He added: "I am truly sorry to everyone that have tickets for tonight. It kills me to have to do this. I hope to see you all on Friday. JT"

Justin has rescheduled his cancelled concert for Friday, following his second sold-out gig at the venue on Thursday night.

He will also appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday before moving on to perform in Buffalo, New York on Saturday.

The singer gave no indication he was feeling unwell when he took to the stage in Chicago on Tuesday night.

Justin, who is married to Total Recall actress Jessica Biel, kicked off his current tour last November and is due to finish it in Poland in August.
