Kylie Minogue has announced that she won't be taking to the stage in both Dublin and Belfast tonight and tomorrow as part of her Golden Tour and our hearts are broken.

The pop legend was due to perform at Dublin’s 3Arena tonight and Belfast’s SSE Arena tomorrow night, although she has now bowed out of both performances due to a throat infection.


She took to Twitter to let her fans know the bad news writing,  “I’m so sorry to let you know that I can’t do tonight’s Dublin or tomorrow’s Belfast shows.''

She continued, 'I’ve been treating everything possible to be well enough to perform for you but a throat infection has led to vocal strain.”

Although, the good news is that she is working out rescheduling the dates.

“I promise I’ll be back as soon as possible and at 100%. (The Guinness will be on me!). We’re working on rescheduling and more details will follow. I’m so, so sorry to let you down and thank you for understanding.''

Fans were quick to offer their well wishes and tell Kylie not to be in a hurry back.

One wrote, ''health is more important just please make sure you are ok before you come back to DUBLIN and Belfast hope you get better soon.''

While another said, ''Kylie you're not letting anyone down get well soon we love you millions.''

Feel better soon, we love ya.


Following the release of her comeback solo record, Nadine Coyle has announced that she is cancelling all of her upcoming tour dates. 

The former Girls Aloud star had been set to preform at venues across the UK and Ireland next month, however a statement on her official website has confirmed that the gigs will no longer go ahead. 

"Hi guys, I am so sad to say I’m not able to do the tour at this time. I am so sorry and really wish things were different but for many reasons it is not meant to be," it read. 

The Derry native went on the thank her fans for their continued support and explained how the tour had become "impossible" to achieve. 

"You deserve the best show possible and with such big venues and very little dates it was becoming impossible to achieve what we had wanted to do. Everything is a lesson & this is definitely one for me."

"Thank you for your continued love & support!!!"

Many fans have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment at the news. 

No word yet on whether or not the tour dates will be rescheduled. 


Members of the public, who have purchased tickets for Peter Kay’s Live Arena Tour and Dance for Life shows, have been assured they will be offered a refund following the news that the British comedian has had to cancel all of his upcoming appearances.

In a statement released today, Peter said: "Due to unforeseen family circumstances I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects."

"This unfortunately includes my upcoming stand-up tour, Dance For Life shows and any outstanding live work commitments."

"My sincerest apologies," he continued. "This decision has not been taken lightly and I'm sure you'll understand my family must always come first."

The stand-up, who was set to play Dublin's 3Arena across six dates in February 2019, expressed his regret over the circumstances, but asked the public to respect his decision.

"I've always endeavoured to protect my family’s privacy from the media. I hope that the media and the public will continue to respect our privacy at this time. Once again I'm very sorry," he finished.

As most One Direction fans will know, back in June former band member Zayn Malik was forced to pull his act from London’s Capital Summertime Ball because of his issues with anxiety.

And while the singer has since opened up about his battle with mental health, today’s news confirms that Zayn’s personal struggles are not quite over.

According to the Mail Online, the former X Factor contestant has been forced to cancel his upcoming gig in Dubai because he does not feel “sufficiently confident” to perform on stage.


In a press release detailing the cancellation of the October 7 show, Zayn said: “I have been working over the last three months to overcome my extreme anxiety around major live solo performances.”

“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.”

Gulf News has reported that the Dubai gig was the 23-year-old’s only remaining scheduled solo concert since he left One D last year.


Zayn is one of a number of stars – which includes Selena Gomez and Rita Ora – to publicly acknowledge how anxiety has affected their lives in recent months.

We hope he receives the help he needs to get back on track.

The mega-famous boyband left thousands of fans heartbroken on Tuesday evening when they backed-out of a high-profile concert at the last minute.

Due to take to the stage at the SSE Arena in Belfast as part of their On The Road Again tour, just 30minutes prior to One Direction's scheduled performance waiting spectators were told via a representative that the gig had been cancelled.

Although at the time an official statement from their management said that Liam Payne was ill, further details of his mystery condition are now emerging… and it seems that the 22-year-old suffered from a 'backstage meltdown'.

"The pressures of fame and being on the road for two years have made Liam ill," a source told The Sun.

“He was devastated about letting everyone down, especially the fans, but he wasn’t physically able to get on stage. He had a complete meltdown.”

The source added that it had been "brewing" for a while and the uncertainty of his future with the band's impending hiatus hadn’t helped matters.

One Direction have now committed to performing an extra Belfast date tomorrow evening for the fans they left disappointed on Tuesday.

 Liam himself took to Twitter to confirm that he is "feeling much better now". He added: "I really can't wait to perform and make it up to everyone later."
