Susan Boyle’s Abu Dhabi performance on Friday has been cancelled, according to organisers. The 52-year-old singer and former Britain Got Talent star was due to play at the Zayed Cricket Stadium.
“AUH Live and Susan Boyle’s Management sincerely regret to announce the cancellation of Susan Boyle’s show at the Zayed Cricket Stadium on Friday, December 13, due to logistical production difficulties that prevent the show going ahead at this time,” read the statement. “Ticket refunds may be obtained via Ticketmaster Customer Service.”
Boyle’s Abu Dhabi’s performance was part of her debut world tour which would have seen her at a string of gigs in North America. According to her website, Boyle will not stage any shows until her UK tour in March next year. The singer made headlines on Sunday after revealing she was diagnosed with Asperger’s.
Speaking to the Observer newspaper, Boyle said the diagnosis came as a relief. “Now I have a clearer understanding of what’s wrong and I feel relieved and a bit more relaxed about myself,” she said.
Boyle has recently released her fifth album, Home for Christmas, containing seasonal festive tunes including a posthumous duet will Elvis Presley, O Come All Ye Faithful. — The National staff
