A Dido concert that was due to take place in Dubai on Friday, December 13 has been cancelled at the last minute.

The Thank You singer had been due to play at the Coca-Cola Arena on Friday evening, but a statement from the venue said the concert would not go ahead due to illness.

In the statement, the Coca-Cola Arena said: “Dido apologises to her Dubai fans.”

All tickets will be refunded through the original point of sale, while tickets purchased directly from the arena will be refunded back on to the credit or debit card used for the transaction.

The show was originally due to take place at Dubai's Media City Amphitheatre, but was rescheduled earlier this week due to forecasts of rain and strong winds.

The show would have marked Dido’s UAE debut, and was part of the first tour the singer had embarked on for 15 years.

There is currently no news as to whether the show will be rescheduled at any stage.
