Pop singer Whitney Houston has cancelled the Paris concert she was due to give Tuesday because of illness, the concert’s organisers said.
Houston was suffering from a respiratory infection and a new date would be announced later in the day, said the statement. The Paris concert, at the Paris-Bercy arena, was to have been the first date in a European tour. Tickets must be kept by fans to go to next date. Insurances will pay concert preparation fees. The next concert in the tour, in Manchester, England on Thursday, was still set to go ahead, said organisers.
