Olly Murs has come under fire after he cancelled a performance and then turned up at a football match just hours later.

The singer was scheduled to perform at the Heroes Parade in Manchester, but his rep said he had to cancel due to "extenuating circumstances."

But were those "circumstances" a footie match in Liverpool?

He was snapped cheering on Manchester United in Anfield Football Stadium on Monday as the parade went ahead without him.

And as you can guess, his fans are not happy. One Twitter user wrote, "Very disappointed in Olly. Had a horrible feeling he would go to the match after letting Heroes Parade down."

However, his rep has come back and said that the match had nothing to do with the former Xtra Factor host not performing.

"He was always planning to go there after. It has got nothing to do with the reason why he didn't perform."

Hmmm, we still don't think it was a great move!


Fans were left devastated last night when One Direction cancelled their scheduled On The Road Again tour performance in Belfast.

And with tickets for two more concerts – tonight and tomorrow night – already sold-out, understandably thousands of attendees have been worried that they too would miss out on the show.

However, Aiken Promotions has now said that those WILL go ahead as planned. Better still, anyone who missed out on last night's gig will be able to attend a rescheduled concert this Friday. 

"Once again we apologise for the cancellation of last night’s One Direction show," the statement began. 

"We thank everyone for their understanding and their good wishes to Liam. 

"Tuesday’s concert has been rescheduled for this Friday 23rd October. All tickets from last night's postponed concert will be valid for Friday.

"For anyone not able to attend the rescheduled show on Friday, please contact point of purchase for detail of how to obtain a refund."

With the band going on an extended break from next spring, their three Belfast gigs had been very much eagerly anticipated. 

However, Northern Irish fans – as well as those who had travelled from around the island to the SSE Arena – were left hugely disappointed when the lads cancelled at the last minute.

A statement read out to the largely irate crowd said that Liam Payne had fallen ill and was unable to perform. Disappointingly, none of the band appeared in front of their fans, though Harry, Louis and Niall did take to Twitter later in the evening.

Both Mr Styles and Mr Horan stated that "these things happen," while Mr Tomlinson said the situation was "out of our control".

An online official comment from the band's management last night explained: "Unfortunately One Direction have had to cancel tonight's concert in Belfast.  

"Liam has been taken suddenly ill, and the concert will sadly not be taking place. Fans have been asked to hold on to their tickets and there will be a further statement tomorrow.

"The band apologise to their fans and wish Liam well as soon as possible."


Still very much an up-and-coming rap artist, Tyga is surely eager to secure as many gigs as he possibly can.

But he's now had to cancel no fewer than three heavily-publicised performances that were scheduled to take place in a matter of days in Brazil. 

The reason? Well, the furious organisers are placing the blame solely at the feet of the 25-year-old's teenager girlfriend, Kylie Jenner.

In a statement made to Mail Online, the promoters said Tyga’s reps had informed them "he would not be coming to Brazil for his shows because he was stopped by his current girlfriend, media personality and socialite Kylie Jenner".

"We are very upset in finding out an artist lacks the professionalism and the love for Brazilian fans, and allows something personal to interfere with his work schedule," they added.

They furthermore claimed that they were only informed of the change in plans earlier this week – with the gigs themselves due to take place from tomorrow in Sao Paulo.

Brazilian fans, however, have been a lot more scathing, with streams of them taking to online platforms to mock the rapper and his reality TV star love.

"Kylie didn’t let you come to Brazil because she was worried you’d swap her for a Brazilian," one tweeted to Tyga earlier today.

Also on Twitter, a second fan asked: "Was she afraid he would find someone with a bigger butt than hers?!"

Famous Brazilian beauties include Victoria's Secret models Adriana Lima and Gisele Bundchen.

And for the last three years, Miss Brazil has finished in the Top 10 at the Miss World contest, while the Brazilian contestant has every year since 2011 also finished in the Top 15 at Miss Universe.

As well as damage to his reputation, Tyga will now have to cough up a hefty fine to the organisers of his Brazilian concerts. Here's to hoping Ms Jenner might offer him a loan…
