Jessie J cancels NZ show
UK pop star Jessie J has cancelled her New Zealand show scheduled for next Tuesday at Auckland's Vector Arena.
The concert's promoters issued a statement this morning saying the cancellation is due to unexpected production issues arising from rehearsals, which in turn have led to delays. This means her tour will no longer be able to start on the date it was meant to.
In the statement, the singer born Jessica Cornish, said how disappointed she was at being unable to come to New Zealand.
"You guys have no idea how disappointed I am that I am unable to start my tour how I intended to, by meeting my amazing New Zealand fans. I promise I will be back as soon as I can to give you a show you'll all remember. Thank you for all your support and once again I am so very sorry".
It's the second time the singer has cancelled a visit to New Zealand. She was scheduled to make a promotional visit, including a free performance at a shopping centre, in April last year but pulled out citing "family commitments".
