Kylie Minogue has cancelled her Belfast and Dublin shows after the singer announced she has a throat infection.

Her Belfast gig scheduled for Monday 8 October will no longer go ahead, leaving thousands of fans disappointed.

I’ve been trying everything possible to be well enough to perform for you but a throat infection has led to vocal strain. I promise I’ll be back as soon as possible and at 100%.
