Mariah Carey has cancelled her Australian tour two months before she is due to arrive, citing a scheduling conflict.
It is the second time Carey has postponed her Australian and New Zealand tour, which was originally organised for February this year but pushed back to October.
The rescheduled tour that was set to be âmuch biggerâ than the one in February, but in fact had slashed Perth from the bulletin.
The singer said in a statement that she was cancelling the tour due to a âscheduling conflictâ.
âIt is with much regret that I am unable to visit Australia & New Zealand later this year, however I promise to find new dates soon,â she said.
âIâve been working away on new music and I cannot wait to share it with you later this year.â
She had been due to perform four shows in Australia and New Zealand, finishing at Brisbaneâs Sandstone Point Hotel on October 14.
The cancellation set Twitter alight, with some users suggesting the singer had mistreated her fans.
âWow! Unbelievable... Mariah Carey has cancelled her tour. Pink had better not cancel tomorrow, and Katy Perry had better do all of her shows next week as well,â one Twitter user wrote in shock.
In December last year, also two months prior to her tour, Carey announced she was pushing back the show until October, at the time crediting a ânecessary rea lignment of her international engagements for 2018â.
Touring partner MJR presents said: âWe are disappointed that Mariahâs shows are cancelled but look forward to hearing her new material soon. Full refunds will be given to all ticket holders from their original point of purchase and we apologize for the inconvenience to fans and ticket holders.âSource: Google Australia | Netizen 24 Australia
