Pop superstar KYLIE MINOGUE was forced to abandon a concert in Manchester, England on Saturday night after being struck down with flu.
The CAN’T GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD singer left the stage at the Manchester Evening News Arena after singing just nine songs, only to re-emerge ten minutes later for a duet with sister DANNII – before abandoning the gig just 45 minutes into her two hour set.
She told fans, “I’m sorry and I’ve never had to do this in my career before but I can’t sing on.”
Spokesman JOHN BILLS said, “Several members of the crew, the tour manager and Kylie have been suffering from flu but she didn’t want to let anyone down. She wanted to get through the show but had to cut it short.”
Minogue has confirmed she’ll go ahead with the remaining four dates of her Showgirl – Homecoming Tour, and she’ll be back on stage in Manchester tomorrow.
