Fans of SZA have been left "confused and disappointed" after the singer's one-off Auckland show was abruptly cancelled.

Just over two weeks out from the July 26 gig at Spark Arena, attendees received a text message and email from Ticketmaster saying SZA would not be performing.

The correspondence included information on how to receive a full refund.

With only "unforeseen circumstances" listed as a reason, Ebonee Hodder, who booked tickets for her birthday, told Newshub the last-minute cancellation had ruined her plans.

"I feel upset and annoyed that nothing has been said about it," she said. "What's the deal?"

It was set to be the 'All The Stars' hit-maker's second show in Aotearoa after she sold out Auckland's Logan Campbell Centre last year.

SZA remains on the line-up for Australia's Splendour In The Grass festival, which prompted the Kiwi side show.

Entertainment website Pilerates reports ticket-holders to the Grammy nominee's Perth sideshow received the same cancellation message from Ticketmaster.

SZA has yet to publicly comment on the cancellation, however as Hodder pointed out: "She does say she 'owes us nothing'," referring to the quote in the singer's Instagram bio.
