Shaggy, the American-Jamaican reggae legend, has cancelled his performance at Beach Feast in Abu Dhabi at the last mintue.

Organisers said the singer, who was due to perform on Yas Island on Friday, "due to unforeseen circumstances relating to his tour schedule in the UK".

"Beach Feast will otherwise go ahead with a vibrant line up of local music and culinary talent and will feature international super star ‘Lucenzo’ on its second day, Saturday December 16th," a statement read.

Ticket holders for the Friday Beach Feast event have already been notified by Platinum List and offered a full refund, through Platinum List or upon arrival at the event venue, the statement read.

Organisers are now offering free entry to the Friday event on Yas Beach.
